Guinness and Keogh’s have announced the second flavour as part of their limited-edition crisp collaboration – the iconic stout, paired with oysters.
The partnership launched in 2021 and saw the two companies come together to create a range of crisp flavours that can be enjoyed with a Guinness.
The second flavour to be released, Guinness and Oyster, is a pairing that is famous around the world. The roasted barley, hops, and malt of Guinness gives these Keogh’s crisps a smooth and satisfying stout taste.
Guinness and oysters are the oldest Guinness and food combination on record, with the association dating back to 1837.
The historical link between the Guinness and Keogh’s families goes back several generations. Tom Keogh’s grandfather, Peter Keogh, sold his grain to the St James’s Gate brewery, and this partnership has now come full circle.
Keogh’s crisps are created from locally sourced Irish ingredients, and the farm has been awarded carbon neutral and Bord Bia Origin Green gold member status. Guinness is committed to working towards a low-carbon future, harnessing 100% renewable energy to achieve net zero carbon emissions across its direct operations and working with suppliers to reduce indirect carbon emissions by 50% by 2030.
Speaking on the collaboration, Declan Hassett, Senior Licensing Manager at Guinness, said: “Following the successful launch of the Guinness and Flame Grilled Steak collaboration, we are delighted to once again to be working with the fantastic team at Keogh’s to create the Guinness Oyster crisp. This unique, unexpected combination in a crisp was great fun to create and delivers a really delicious flavour.”
Tom Keogh added: “We are delighted to be launching our second product with Guinness. The flavoursome Keogh’s Guinness and Oyster crisp is something we are very proud of on the farm. The succulent Oyster and creamy Guinness Stout combine to form this renowned pairing. We are looking forward to hearing what people think of the unique taste!”
The limited-edition Guinness and Oyster crisps are available now exclusively at the Guinness Storehouse, Guinness Open Gate Brewery, Guinness pop-ups and on Keogh’s online farm shop at shop.keoghs.ie. Select stores nationwide will be running an offer whereby if you purchase 8 cans of Guinness, you get one sharing bag of Guinness and Oyster crisps for free while stocks last. The collaboration will continue through 2022 with wider availability in retail stores from 19th of May.
