Madrí Excepcional aims to capture “El alma de Madrid” or “The Soul of Madrid” and has all the taste characteristics of a modern European-style lager. The crisp, clean and refreshing liquid is full of flavour and aroma at 4.6% ABV, with a light golden colour and a smooth, well-rounded taste profile with a short bitter finish.
Its branding is inspired by the term “Chulapo” – originally a group of people in Madrid during the 19th century who were famous for their elaborate style of dress and cheeky attitude. Today, the term is often used to refer to people from Madrid and this sense of style and attitude that lives on in the city. Madrí Excepcional embodies this sentiment by bringing together traditional and modern brewing techniques to produce a great tasting fusion beer.
Carlos Garcia, Founder and CEO of La Sagra Brewery, said: “La Sagra is founded on taking the best of the diverse cultures that surround us and applying innovative brewing techniques to create great tasting beers that stand out from the crowd. These principles are shared by Molson Coors and by working together we’ve created something really special in Madrí Excepcional, a unique fusion of the Chulapo way of life and British brewing heritage.”
