Innis & Gunn to launch limited edition beers in US


Innis & Gunn is set to launch two small batch, limited edition beers Latitude and Longitude and Vanishing Point.

The Latitude and Longitude series includes Raspberry Saison. Latitude and Longitude is being launched this month while Vanishing Point by fall.

Innis & Gunn USA general manager Neil Innis Sharp said: "We've stayed true to the Saison style, brewing the beer with ale and acid malt, then fermenting it with a wild yeast.

"Then we've matured the beer in bourbon barrels to which we added heaps of Scottish raspberries. The Raspberry Saison is delicious, refreshing, and unique, perfect for warm weather days. There is an amazing raspberry and elderflower aroma, and depth and warmth from the barrel maturation, with a clean, flinty finish."

Innis and Gunn is imported into the US by United States Beverage.

United States Beverage senior brand director Georgia Homsany said: "As the pioneers of barrel-age brewing, Innis & Gunn continues in their quest to brew innovative, delicious beers that showcase the very best of Scottish brewing craft. We are delighted to work with our wholesaler and retail partners to bring these beers to the American beer drinker."

Vanishing Point 01 is an Imperial stout matured in first-fill bourbon barrels for six months. This beer features flavours of fresh ground coffee, dark chocolate, coconut, and vanilla.

The beers will be served in 500ml bottles in gift boxes.

Set up in 2003, Innis & Gunn sold more than 27 million bottles of beer around the world in 2017.
