Finally they’re here (well at least for those living in Ireland and the United Kingdom). The Dublin brewery working in collaboration with Sean Loughnane have created Guinness sausages.
Guinness Stout and Leek and Guinness Stout and Onion along with your Saturday full Irish breakfast what could be better?
The leek variant was awarded a Gold Star at the 2015 Great Taste Awards, with the hope of more awards to follow throughout 2016.
The new sausages were created by the award-winning Irish sausage manufacturer, Sean Loughnane who worked with flavor experts at Guinness. What they came up with is a sausage that brilliantly captures the essence and unique flavor profile of the world-famous stout.
Loughnane’s is a third generation artisan sausage and pudding producer based in Galway City. This is not the first time the two companies have worked together. They have supplied the world famous Guinness Storehouse with an on-menu sausage for the past eight years.
Speaking about their newest Guinness products Daire Loughnane, Sean Loughnane’s Managing Director, said “When producing this product we really wanted to focus on the taste.
“A great Irish pork sausage at the heart of it, we decided to go for a large meaty sausage, it’s what the customers want. We’re proud of our heritage and are delighted to be working with a world class brand that has strong Irish connections.
A spokesperson from Guinness said “We’re excited to add Guinness sausages to the growing range of licensed food products using Guinness stout as an ingredient.
“It’s great that the brand can be consumed in such a wide variety of formats. Guinness sausages have been on menu in the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin for years. It is important for us to team traditional sausage making skills with our exceptional beer to create a truly unique item. We are excited to now extend our reach and offer consumers around the world the chance to enjoy a taste of the Storehouse.”
Now for the sad news for those Irish and Guinness lovers living abroad. The Guinness sausage are only available in selected stores in the Ireland and the UK ahead of St. Patrick's Day.
