Details

This dark scotch ale is part of an exciting range from Fyne Ales, who are showing their Scottish Farmhouse roots with barrel ageing and inventive brewing processes. This has been aged in kilkerran whisky barrels, and it works sublimely. A gentle peatiness on the nose with some caramel malt and a little earthiness. On the taste, that warming whisky is immediately present, but by no means aggressive. A touch of vanilla and more of that smooth sweet malt. This is mellow, sophisticated and comforting. The perfect warmer for a chilly evening.

Brewery Info

Fyne Ales was founded in 2001 by Jonny and Tuggy Delap after forced early retirement had them moving back to Tuggy's ancestral home and lands. Their aim was always to find a new purpose for the estate to create jobs, tourism and industry for Argyll. The idea of a brewery was mooted and sold, and so, 10BBL brew kit was installed in one of the old cattle sheds.

Fyne Ales started out as a traditional ale outfit, and they rapidly garnered local recognition. With the advent of the craft beer revolution, they started to branch out into craftier offerings starting with the American hopped <a href="https://www.beerhawk.co.uk/fyne-ales-jarl-500ml">Jarl</a>. They moved into Belgian and American inspired farmhouse creations with their origins project, which sees them experimenting with mixed fermentation, barrel aging, locally sourced seasonal ingredients and weird and wonderful recipes.

Whatever you choose you can be sure it'll be a Fyne Ale!
