First thing first, we had to research the Mai Tai. The original drink was invented in the 40s when the tiki craze in America was kicking off, the modern Mai Tai comes with many creative twists, we felt it important that we selflessly sacrificed some nights around London trying as many Mai Tai’s as was humanly possible.
After several long research sessions, it turns out it’s all about the citrus; built on a rum base, the orange and the lime really come to the forefront, this helped with our hop selection to create a big, boozy Double IPA. The use of Amarillo, Citra, and Denali give the beer a striking tropical aroma with hints of orange, passionfruit, and pineapple. The use of oats during the mash-in results in a more well-rounded body, with a reduced bitterness, but enough to be true to style. The addition of natural flavours of orange, lime, and almond give the final touches for this homage to the tiki classic.
So, during what’s left of this dreary winter, let Castaway transport you to the sunshine of the South Pacific. Let the sun kiss your face, the sand massage your feet, and keep the Mai Tai’s (Double IPA’s) coming!
