Bourbon pale ale for Innis & Gunn

27 August, 2015

Innis & Gunn has launched a Bourbon Pale Ale, aged over bourbon-infused American heartwood oak. 

The 6% abv copper-coloured brew is modelled on an American pale ale and has real bourbon flavours on the palate, according to the Scottish brewery.

Founder Dougal Sharp said: “We’re excited to launch our Bourbon Pale Ale and as far as beers go it’s as American as they come – minus the cheerleaders and high-fives, sadly. It’s been a labour of love to nail the true depth of bourbon flavour but by using American heartwood oak in our ageing process we’re pretty confident this beer is a true American beauty.”

The beer has already won listings in Tesco and some independents.

What makes wine special

Reaching the 50th instalment of Hemming’s Way is hardly the biggest milestone, but I don’t need much of an excuse to pour myself a glass of champagne before getting dressed. It’s a better reason than I had for all 49 other instalments, anyway. Not that that stopped me.
