Tokyo*, in an islay cask with raspberries? Why the hell not.

Christmas Eve adventures at BrewDog....

You will need:

2 x 500L Islay whisky casks

60 Kilos local Scottish Raspberries (slightly more if James is helping)

Some 18.2% Tokyo*

4 young brewers

Busy filling the cask with raspberries. I also seemed to eat a lot of them, they are my favourite fruit and third favourite food overall.

A slight overflow, someone was too busy eating raspberries.

Sounds great and if its a Laphroaig or Lagavulin cask then all the better!!!

So a key keg for the rake then?

I will look forward to trying. But why always an ISLAY cask. personally im not fond of the Islay ones. Maybe next time we can have an Arran one.
