Camden Town Brewery has released its new winter seasonal, Chilly Cold IPA (6% ABV).

Inspired by a new cold IPA brewing style, the new serve is made with Camden’s original lager yeast, but at a warmer temperature, with flaked rice, wheat, and new world hops.

Originally created as part of the brand’s Arch55 small batch series, Chilly IPA, offers a fruity flavour with frosty freshness, best served between 5 and 7°C.

Camden Town Brewery head of marketing Fred Nesbitt said: “Our brewers were ahead of the game when they brewed a Cold IPA last year, giving the UK our fresh take on a style of beer that has been a hit across the pond.

“Chilly is a hybrid style beer, bursting full of new world hop flavour but with a light and crisp body – grab it whilst you can, because we can’t promise Chilly will be here for long.”

Camden’s Chilly, Cold IPA is available now from the brand’s webshop at RRP £18 for 6x440ml cans.

Premium world beer, cider and spirits company, KBE Drinks, has announced the launch of 5 Walla (17% ABV), a rum-based chai tea cream liqueur. 

Available from KBE now at RRP £21, 5 Walla chai tea cream liqueur is made from a unique recipe of five spices, blending cinnamon, clove, cardamom, ginger and vanilla to produce a creamy drink, presented in a standout black bottle inspired by famous artwork found on traditional Indian matchboxes.

KBE Drinks innovation brand manager Tom Elliot Frey said: “We’re delighted to be bringing the UK’s first and only chai cream liqueur into the UK on-trade which lets consumers experience a new way to drink Chai tea.

"Liqueurs are definitely hot at the moment and we’re confident 5 Walla will appeal to both those consumers who already enjoy chai lattes and even chai cocktails, but also encourage new consumers to experience chai for the first time, as well as hopefully inspiring bar tenders to use it as an exciting addition to their cocktail recipes.”

A seasonal twist on the brand's Neck Oil , with icy hops frozen immediately after being picked to create the fresh and zesty flavour, it also has a smoother and more potent grapefruit flavour combined with a frosty mango hop hit.

The new serve has also been infused with edible glitter to create a sparkly snowball effect in the glass.

57 Skye Earth and Sea Spirits has launched its first two small batch gin expressions, 57˚ Skye earth and sea gin and 57˚ Skye earth and sea Banyuls Cask Finished Gin, both 43% ABV and distilled in Broadford, the Isle of Skye.

The brand’s 57 Skye Earth and Sea offers notes of citrus, pine and liquorice on the nose with a floral and lavender taste while the Banyuls French oak cask finished serve has fresh lemon and lime on the nose with a hint of spice and waxy vanilla with layers of orchard fruits to taste.

Both gin expressions have been crafted by distiller Seumas Gorman, a native of Skye who was trained in the art of distilling by the creator of the multi award-winning Thomas Dakin Gin.

57 Skye founder Séamus Ó Baoighill said. “Both gins are shaped by the island’s stunning surroundings and habitat and, whilst both are juniper-led London Dry Gins, the fusion of sea and earth botanicals gives them a modern twist which we hope will be enjoyed by gin lovers around the world. “

Both new expressions are available now from Master of Malt at RRP £40.99 for the Earth and Sea Gin and RRP £44.99 for the cask finished variant.

Award-winning East Anglian Brewery, Bruha, has released its latest beer, Bruha XO.

Recently awarded gold at the Norwich Beer Festival, Bruha XO (8.5% ABV), has been brewed using the best-quality barley and offers a complex combination of crystal malt, rye and wheat, aged in whisky and Oloroso Sherry barrels to create a heady aroma and smooth finish.

Bruha managing director Rob Breakwell said: “We are excited to launch our new barrel-aged beer, Bruha XO, which we have created to celebrate the ageing process.

"Using the old whisky and sherry barrels it brings about wonderful residual flavours in the beer, such as caramel, vanilla and charred oak notes. It creates a great-tasting and balanced beer that we expect to be very popular."

Bruha XO is available now direct from the brewery's webshop at RRP £60 for a case of 12 cans or RRP £7 per 400ml serve. 

If you have any new products being released to the on-trade, email the details with high resolution images before Thursday at midday for potential inclusion on Friday’s article to Erorppn.jryyre@jeoz.pbz​​​​​​​.
