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.
