The Vanishing Point series epitomises Innis & Gunn’s identity. The skill, creativity and passion of our brewers converges with our ambition to create unrivalled beers. VP04 is just that; a bold, pioneering beer that pushes the boundaries of brewing. Each ingredient has been hand selected and is the absolute best we can get. The result is a beer that is undeniably delicious, with a silky smooth finish. This a serious beer for serious beer fans. One which can be enjoyed now or in a few years time.
Innis & Gunn Vanishing Point 04 is the fourth expression in the series. Each release is a small batch, limited edition. For VP04, we have matured rich Imperial Stout in first-fill bourbon barrels for 450 days. This creates a beer with even greater depth of character and complexity of flavour.
On the nose, VP04 offers tempting aromas of juicy red fruits, rich oak, caramel and cinder toffee. The taste is incomparable with any beer you’ll have tried before. Fulsome notes of chocolate and burnt malt offer a sophisticated and mature experience. All giving way to a sweet finish of rich caramel and warming bourbon. This 11% ABV beer has been given our full time and attention; you’ll want to give it the same.
