FLUX Gastropub

You may have heard about our pop-up concept bar called FLUX. It is our side project of passion that means we can explore new, exciting concepts or events.

Putting our own spin on the gastropub world is something we have been wanting to do for the longest time. As with anything, the time must be right. Well, the time is now!

From Thursday 6th August, we will be serving these delicious dishes on our new gastropub menu in FLUX. The menu is only available Thursday-Saturday.

We are crazy excited about this venture, especially after tasting the menu. There is no set deadline for this menu, as is the nature of any pop-up. Do not waste any time, come and enjoy.
You Better Beer-lieve It!
We are switching things up for our "Craft Beer of the Month" for August.

We are having not just one, but three or four, from different independent micro-breweries. We are only able to get our hands on a couple or maybe just a single keg of each beer, so once the kegs run out, they are gone.

We expect to get our first beer of our Craft Beers of August series next week, until it is in our hands we want to keep you all guessing what it could be

What's In A Name: Irish vs Scottish Whiskey
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much of good whiskey is barely enough.”
-Mark Twain
The name ‘Whisky’ is derived from both Uisce beatha (Irish Gaelic) and Uisge beatha (Scottish Gaelic) which were both translated from the Latin ‘aqua vitae’ meaning ‘water of life.’ There is a long disagreement about the first recorded production between Ireland and Scotland. One of the most common questions we are asked at the bar is what the main differences between Irish and Scottish whisky are. Here is a brief guide for those that love a dram as much as us.  
Whisky or Whiskey?
You may have noticed there is a cheeky spelling difference between whisky and whiskey. This is down to an Irishman called Aeneas Coffey who perfected the continuous still. The continuous still, or the ‘Coffey still’, led to an era of cheap, mass produced grain spirit which was made by an inferior distillation method, according to the Irish producers. At the time, Ireland was the world’s whisky powerhouse and they wanted nothing to do with this cheap, light spirit - condemning it as a bastardization of the pot still technique and flavour, not fit to wear the name whisky on its label. Demonised and exiled, Coffey took his method to the Scots and is one of the reasons that Scottish whisky dominated the whisky world for so long. As a result, the ‘e’ was added to the name by the Irish to signify that theirs was a premium product and not to be confused which what they saw as cheap pish. It is thought that the American market adopted whiskey with an ‘e’ due to the large amount of immigration and trade between Ireland and America.
Scotch Whisky:
For a “whisky” to be legally defined as Scotch whisky, it (obviously) must be produced and matured at a distillery in Scotland. Furthermore, it must be composed of water and malted barley, to which only whole grains of other cereals may be added. It also must be aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 3 years. Typically, Scotch is distilled twice in copper pot stills.
The six whisky regions of Scotland are Highlands, Speyside, Lowlands, Campbeltown, Islay and Islands. Each are known for a distinct profile of flavours characteristics. An example is that Speyside is generally known for its sweet and slightly spicy single malts that either have very little or no peat added to their production. If this sounds like your kind of dram then consider a Balvenie or Glenfiddich. In contrast, Islay whiskies are known to be powerful, peat-fuelled ‘punches in a glass’ that often have notes of sea salt and smoke due to the distilleries being located on the rocks close to the harsh Scottish sea. Ardbeg, Laphroaig and Lagavulin are some of the world-famous distilleries from this region. Delving into the differences between these regions and the dispute of whether there are ‘officially’ six regions is something that we will be doing in a later newsletter section.
Irish Whiskey:
Let’s now move across the channel to Ireland. Irish whiskey must be distilled on the island of Ireland and be produced from a mash of malted cereals with or without whole grains of other cereals. It must be aged to a minimum of three years and can be matured in a barrel that is new or one that has previously contained Bourbon, Sherry or Rum. The whiskey must also be a minimum of 40% ABV.
The majority of Irish whiskey is distilled three times, leading to a smoother spirit as more ‘impurities’ are taken out of the spirit, as opposed to the two-time distillation of scotch. Most Irish distilleries do not use peat in the production of their whiskey; the smoky flavours that arise from using peat in the production of the whiskey are seen to detract from or even destroy the intricate characteristics of Irish whiskey. While it is not a legal requirement to follow this method it is the more preferred style, though you can find distilleries, such as Connemara, who follow more of the Scottish method in producing peated Irish Whiskey, which is also distilled twice.
Around 90% of all Irish whiskey production is blended. Blended Irish whiskey is a mixture of single malt whiskeys from either the same or different distilleries. The Irish whiskey market has been shifting towards more production of Single Pot Still Whiskey. These whiskies contain a mixture of malted and unmalted barley that is distilled in a pot still. Midleton, Redbreast and Teeling are amongst the distilleries producing Single Pot Still whiskey that is taking the whiskey world by storm.
Whether you enjoy your whiskey, with an ‘e’ or without, it is the different production methodologies that make the big differences to the drams we love. As Shakespeare wrote “What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Whether it is Irish or Scottish, we should love our finely produced drams all the same.

🍀 Tir na nÓg Newsletter #2

"Our mission is to provide our customers with an experience that is the perfect blend of Irish charm and Danish cosiness. Our focus is on friendly customer service, quality products and unique ambiance makes any day something special to share with friends and family"

Sunday is a day for everyone. Whether you're spending quality time with the family, catching up with friends or cheering on your team, the aim of the day is to relax and take it easy.

The Lowdown on Non-Alcoholic  Beers
The non-alcoholic beer industry has been rapidly growing over the last few years and shows no sign of slowing down. These are beers that are brewed to have a ABV under 0.5%, which is about the same alcohol content as a very ripe banana or pear. The allure of a refreshing beer without the hangover, together with lower calories, has many people choosing non-alcoholic alternatives in regards to leading healthier lifestyles. Where there is such a demand, companies has been placing more time and resources onto making these beers taste just like domestic beers.

A question that our bartenders are frequently asked is, 'how is non-alcoholic beer made?' So, here is the lowdown on nonalcoholic beer.

Non-alcoholic beers go through the same brewing process as regular beers. This includes making a mash, boiling the wort, adding hops and fermenting. Once this stage is reached, regular beers are then bottled or kegged. Non-alcoholic beers require an extra step, which is arguably the most important, removing or lessening the alcohol.

There are three methods in doing this:

1) Boil the Brew - Alcohol has a lower boiling temperature than water so brewers can heat the fermented beer until the alcohol is removed (0.5% or under). The issue here is that when re-heating the beer to remove the alcohol, some of the flavour can be lost in the process.

2) Vacuum Distillation - Lowering the pressure by placing the beer in a vaccum while distilling results in the boiling point being at a lower temperature. This means that the alcohol can be removed at a lower temperature and the flavour is less affected.

3) Reverse Osmosis - This is a fancy way of saying that the fermented beer is passed through a tight filter that separates the water and alcohol, as they are the smallest molecules, from the acids, colour and flavours. The water and alcohol is then distilled separately to remove the alcohol and then the water is recombined with the acids,colours and flavours to create the non-alcoholic beer. This downside to this method is that it requires more time, labour and money.
Sharing is Caring
Sharing really is caring - especially when it comes to cocktails! 

We now offer our Merchant Room kegtails, made with our in house recipes, as sharing cocktails. Invite friends, colleagues or that special someone to come and experience cocktails that are bursting with flavours and freshness together. 

Sharing cocktails are available for 250kr. If you are one of our Loyalty Program members, then every Thursday in July you can get them for 200kr as a special offer.

New ‘Terroir’ for Irish Whiskey
In the world of Irish whiskey, Waterford distillery have broke new ground and redefined the expression of 'natural.' Taking inspiration from some of the world's greatest winemakers, they have now released their Single Farm Origin series. This is a limited edition series of natural whiskies that explores Irish terroir, one farm, one place at one time. Terroir taken from French means the complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography, and climate.

In using 100% Irish barley from a very specific farm, the aim is to provide different expressions of "precision and rarity, showcasing barley flavours derived from individual Irish farms and harvests."

Bannow Island: Edition 1.1 (Distilled in 2016)
Made from Overture barley grown on the extreme southern coast of County Wexford, where salt-laden Atlantic winds and sandy soils create a unique, if somewhat challenging, terroir.

Ballykilcavan: Edition 1.1 (Distilled in 2016)
Made from Taberna barley grown to the west of the River Barrow in County Laois. This is in the barley heartlands, where his fertile fields are sheltered by ancient woodland. 

We think that you will agree, this is amazing work by the people at Waterford Distillery and we cannot wait to taste the differences between the different editions. Read more about the series on their website
Premier League
We are set for a mouth watering finish to this season of the Premier League. The remaining games are all to be played in July. Liverpool, deservedly, lifted the trophy but there is still a lot to play for. There is currently only 3 points between, Leicester City, Chelsea, Man Utd and Wolves, who are all in contention to get 3rd place. The final fixtures of the season will be played on the 26th July (as it stands) and the fina games that see Man Utd vs Leicester and Chelsea vs Wolves, means that it could go down to the final whistle of the season to see who gets which position.

The bottom of the league is just as interesting as Norwich City, Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Watford, West Ham and Brighton are all fighting potential relegation. 

All games will be shown where possible. Keep an eye on our FB page for all the fixtures that will be shown
Solid Effort
Pubs in Ireland were allowed to re-open from Monday (29/06) after the lockdown. Due to the restrictions, customers are only allowed in the pub in time slots of 1.5 hours. Now, obviously we take drinking responsibly very seriously and hope that the re-opening can go as smoothly as possible for everyone. That being said, we had to give a round of applause to an unnamed man that used his 1.5 hours to rack up a bill (€222.90) of 42 pints of Guinness to go with some fish and chips and a couple bowls of soup.

It seems unclear if the bill was a result of the man being extremely generous to his mates or an extreme scooping session. Either way, we have to say that it was a solid effort and if the mysterious man is ever in Aarhus, we have a pint of Guinness waiting for him on us!  Read more from The Irish Post here.
