Brewery Steðji will introduce a Thorri beer, Hvalur 2, later this month following the success of Hvalur Thorri which the company brewed and introduced last year. A lot of preparation went into Hvalur 2, according to the owner of the brewery.
“We want to create a true Thorri atmosphere and therefore we decided to put smoked testicles from fin whales into the beer for flavoring” says Dagbjartur Arilíusson, one of the owners of brewery in Borgarfjörður.
“The testicles are cured according to an old, Icelandic tradition, lightly salted and then smoked. We put a lot of effort into this and it’s a long process,” Dagbjartur says, adding that each brew had contained one testicle.
