Once a mere limited edition brew, this rum-soaked ragamuffin socked and scrapped its way to centre-stage and now sits pride of place amongst Innis & Gunn’s core brews. Matured using oak that’s been soaked in specially selected rums, this ruby red ale boasts an aroma of mulled spices, and deep fruity malt flavour, bolstered by rum spices whilst still remarkably light and refreshing.- 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.View the Innis & Gunn page
