The balls are cured before being salted and smoked, with one gonad per brewing.

A spokesperson from the brewery said:

We want to create a true Thorri atmosphere, and therefore we decided to use smoked testicles from fin whales for flavouring the beer. We put a lot of effort into this and it’s a long process.

They also annoyed conservationists last year by using different parts of whales, like bones and intestines.

Lovely.
