The ale that started it all off for Innis & Gunn, this amber beer was discovered accidentally in 2003. Each batch spends 30 days in oak casks, wherein all the subtle complexities of that resplendent old wood are imbued into the ale. The result is a gloriously creamy brew full of creamy vanilla and delectable biscuit maltiness. Mellow and buttery in the extreme, Innis & Gunn is a truly unique brew, and one that demands checking out. - Learn more about Innis & Gunn
In 2002 the Founder and Master Brewer Dougal Gunn Sharp was asked to create a beer to mature in bourbon barrels to impart a sweet, malty flavour. This beer would then be thrown out, and the barrels would go on to age spirits. But Dougal had a brain wave;
What if this was the start of something great?
What if the beer was actually getting better whilst in the barrel? Turns out, he was absolutely right and Innis & Gunn was born.
Since their creation in 2003, they have been busy brewing up an ever-growing range of flavour packed beers. In 2013 their Barrel Aged line-up was joined by an award-winning Lager Beer, which soon became the fastest growing Lager in Scotland, and was swiftly followed by their IPAs for those who prefer a hoppier brew.
