Berkshire fine snack producer Made for Drink has teamed up with Offshore Pilsner from north Cornwall-based Sharp’s Brewery to create a new summer snack pairing.
Made For Drink’s “delicate yet crunchy” Hungarian Mangalitza salami chips are said to complement the crisp, clean flavour and citrus aromas of Offshore Pilsner, which is brewed with Czech yeast and continental hops.
The salty, rich in fat and umami profile of the chips provides “depth of flavour” when paired with the brew.
Made for Drink founder Dan Featherstone said: “The strong cultural bond that naturally co-exists between two products with such rich Eastern European ties meant that this was always going to be a sublime epicurean union between producers committed to the same best-in-class values.”
Sharp’s communications manager Rachel Williams added: “We applaud Made for Drink’s ongoing mission to create an artisan snacking operation that actively embraces the finest snacking traditions from around the globe whilst refusing to cut corners in terms of world class ingredients, small-batch cooking methods or cultural food and drinks ties.
“We were especially excited to trial Made for Drink’s stylish fine snacking tins because we believe this style of thoughtful packaging is an industry first in terms of plastic-free, recyclable packaging, reflecting our own determination to reduce our footprint on the wider environment.”
