What’s Brewin’ – Innis & Gunn Original

Innis & Gunn’s Original came about accidentally when Brewmaster Dougal Sharp was contacted by a whisky distiller about creating an ale-finished whisky. The master brewer came up with an ale to offer a “beery” taste to the oak barrels and the resultant Ale Reserve Whisky was deemed a success. Workers in the brewery who tasted the beer discovered it had been transformed during its time in the Bourbon barrels and tol the master brewer. The brew was rated a nine out of nine, a first for the brewery, and the Original was born.
Creamy and malty, it has a lovely honey color and notes of vanilla. It ages for 77 days in in Bourbon casks andover Bourbon-infused hearted. We found it a refreshing way to toast the first days of Spring.
