In 2009, to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of the brand Guinness Heineken Holding under license from Diageo, which owns Guinness today, began production in Russia of dark stout "Guinness" Original at the facilities of the Heineken Brewery in St. Petersburg.
"Guinness" Original is the most beer, which began with the history of the brand. Diadzheo company strictly controls the production of Russian beer "Guinness". Irish brewers control the entire brewing process and ingredients (almost everything except water, purified on powerful filters), imported from Europe, mostly - from Ireland. Laboratory in Dublin checks organoleptic characteristics of the beverage, produced on the market. In addition to purified drinking water, brewing barley light malt and hops in the beer flavors include "aromatic extracts Guinness" which many confused. I must say that this supplement is completely natural and is made up of burnt barley, malting barley light malt, water and hops.
