Ghost crush all conventions and launch Papastrello - world’s most unholy wine. Launch 4th of April in Sweden!


Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls take things one-step beyond with new wine Papastrello - an Italian red wine for the unholy moments of life.

While the label might claim this Italian red wine, based on Corvina and Rondinella grapes, would pair well with roast meats, game and aged cheese as well as standing alone as accompaniment to after-dinner discussion, the band would like to inform you that it goes equally well with most rituals, wicker-burnings and other pagan activities. From the Veronese region of Italy, the style of wine is characterised by it’s very slow fermentation and the long maceration on it’s skins, producing a well balanced wine with an excellent body and good fruitiness and spiciness. 

Red wine has since the beginning of history been linked to the communion and has many meanings and symbols for religious people over the world. A view Papa Emeritus III doesn’t agree with completely:
"– They say this wine is the blood of Christ? I would argue otherwise. It’s fermented grapes. That’s all. Very nice fermented grapes… but fruit nonetheless." 

Sari H Wilholm, Brands for Fans, is more diplomatic: – Ghost is an amazing band, and we love working with them. With the huge success of both the Grale and Lincopia beers, it feels like a natural next step to launch a red wine which shows the band’s attention to detail and high standards of everything they do. "- As I said, Papa Emeritus III finishes off; this wine is not holier than thou or myself. It’s a good bottle to bring when you are about to sacrifice something sacred. It’s fermented grapes with a nice label!"

When Ghost released their first beer; Ghost Grale, a scotch ale from Nils Oscar Brewery, it became a huge success. Tributes poured into social media and both the music- as well as beer critics agreed that it was a brilliant beer. The strictly limited edition of 10.000 bottles sold out within a few days.

Ghost Papastrello is released on April 4th, and retails for 275 SEK at Systembolaget in Sweden.

Ghost venture further into darkness with new beer. Following the success of Grale, Ghost return with Lincopia; an IPA brewed at Nils Oscar Brewery in Sweden.

When Ghost released their first beer; Grale, a scotch ale from Nils Oscar Brewery, it became an instant success. Receiving massive accolades on various social media; fans, music critics and beer writers were unanimous: Ghost Grale was a brilliant beer. The strictly limited edition of 10.000 bottles sold out within a few days. With a whet appetite for beer production, a second collaboration with Nils Oscar Brewery was initiated. The result this time round is a light IPA produced for the summer. Based on malted barley and wheat for a solid base, it gets it’s well-hopped and – in traditional Nils Oscar style – superbly balanced character from El Dorado, Waimea, Citra, Galaxy and Simcoe hops.

The name Lincopia refers to Ostrogothia, a controversial and heavily disputed tenth level of the Inferno, as described by Dante Alighieri. Considered at the time to portray hell in a positive light, as it welcomed both saints and sinners, it was deemed blasphemous and thus deleted from the original manuscript, leaving Inferno with the now legendary nine levels. A subject that fit Ghost and its spiritual leader

Papa Emeritus III as the proverbial papal glove: "– They speak of heaven round the corner, says Papa Emeritus III. I’d rather speak of hell on earth. In Ostrogothia they both meet, and Lincopia represents both light and darkness for mankind. This beer summarizes it all in a 33 cl bottle."

Patrick Holmqvist, master brewer at Nils Oscar Brewery says: "– With Ghost Grale we took a scotch ale to the limit. Lincopia is a light IPA with no holds barred, that doesn’t sway for either light or dark. I consider this one of the summers best beers!"

Sari H. Wilholm at Brands for Fans says: "– We knew that Grale would be well received, but had no idea that it would sell out so quickly. The phones have been ringing constantly and the email has literally crashed from people wanting to know when they can buy it again. It feels great to be able to offer the fans another beer from Ghost; one of the coolest metal bands on earth if you ask me!"
