Innis & Gunn is once again celebrating the Celtic connection between Scotland and Ireland with the re-release of the popular ‘Irish Whiskey Cask’, their Irish Whiskey Cask matured Scottish Stout.
Jet black in colour, the limited-edition beer is warming and mellow, yet complex with flavours of dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Smooth to drink, the bitterness is balanced to give a long, chocolatey finish.
A combination of Scottish beer and Irish whiskey was first crafted by the award-winning brewer around a decade ago to mark St Patrick’s Day.
This time, the collaboration between nation’s hasn’t stopped with the beer. Irish photographer Christina Kernohan and Scottish Calligrapher Jill Calder have worked together to showcase and bring to life the richness and quality of the beer in an original way.
Dougal Gunn Sharp, Founder, Innis & Gunn said: “Ireland is known for its great stouts, and Scotland for its great whisky, and of course both nations share Celtic culture, character and an innovative spirit.
"To celebrate this, we set out to turn convention on its head by brewing an incredible Scottish stout, then ageing it using the best Irish Whiskey Casks. Our Irish Whiskey Cask Stout is brimming with Celtic attitude.”
The 6.1% ABV limited-edition Irish Whiskey Cask is now available in 500ml can from the Innis & Gunn online shop.
