The Art Of Guinness – The exquisite craft behind the Guinness taste includes malted barley grains which lay out the foundation. The water used to make their exceptional product range comes from the Poulaphouca Lake in County Wicklow. The ruby hue appearance with the rich and dark taste is imparted by their dark-roasted barley and the precision of the roasting process. One important factor in the process is the temperature – 232 degrees. This is the exact marking that makes Guinness taste like Guinness.
