Aged for 18 months in Isle of Arran Bere whisky barrels and made with Orkney-grown barley, you'd be hard pressed to find a porter as Scottish as this one! That long ageing period has given it a brooding, deep brown pour that carries dark scents of chocolate-laced leather. That slightly sweet cocoa carries over onto the tongue too, where its offset with red fruit and a subdued whisky kiss. - Learn more about Swannay Brewery

About the makers

Swannay Brewery
Swannay Brewery Award winning Orkney beer

The Orkney based Swannay Brewery make their beer next to the sea in the wind-battered section of Orkney’s mainland known as Swannay. It started off as a one-man show by founder Rob and is now internationally acclaimed and known as one of Scotland’s most successful breweries. When it comes to beer making, around half of it goes into cask and the rest is either bottled or put in the keg. One strain of yeast is used for a range of resulting strengths, from barrel-aged porters to a hoppy variety of session IPAs. View the Swannay Brewery page
