This beer was when our master brewer Dougal stopped to buy some strawberries in Blairgowrie. The owner of the famous berry shop there, only 20 minutes from our brewery, asked, “Would you like to try some delicious Scottish cherries..?”
Tasting them, Dougal was instantly inspired and replied, much to the shock of the shop owner, “I’ll take 3 punnets of strawberries, and 2 tons of cherries’.
This beer is a celebration of great Scottish produce and proof that our climate is not as bad as some would suggest; thanks to the long spring and summer days and fertile soil, the area around our brewery is known as the garden of Scotland and has been producing mouth-watering soft fruit for generations.
We have matured this cherry beer in oak casks for three months resulting in a beer that is accented with a delicious balance of ripe cherry sweetness, hints of oak and a refreshing tart finish.
