The stout is made by brewer Cuilan Loughnane in the White Gypsy brewery in Templemore, Co. Tipperary. It was produced in the traditional style, but Cuilan “introduced it to the White Gypsy stable with a non-traditional drinker in mind”, envisioning it as a local alternative to wine.

The stout was is aged in new oak barrels built and toasted by a French cooper, and is described as having notes of chocolate and burnt malt. Cuilan has 12 years of brewing experience, and opened the White Gypsy in 2009.
