Laphroaig Islay Whisky Cask-Matured Beer

Islay; a rugged, wild isle that’s famed for its dramatic landscape and uncompromising single malt whisky. Where rich, peated earth, the sea spray in the air and centuries of craftsmanship, all infuse the whisky with distinctive, complex flavours. And there are few whiskies more complex and more emphatic than the Laphroaig Islay Single Malt Whisky.

For this year’s release, we have taken a small cache of rare Laphroaig Quarter Casks in which we have slowly matured an Innis & Gunn beer that is just as bold and just as extraordinary. Absorbing all the deep flavours from the oak – spicy woodsmoke and peat, sea salt and burnt toffee – the beer adds its own rich, roasted flavour to create something as unforgettable as the island and whisky which inspired it.

Islay Whisky Cask is a 7.4% Scottish Red Ale, slowly matured in Laphroaig single malt scotch whisky Quarter Casks – rare casks from one of the most renowned malt whiskies in the world.

During its 12-week maturation, the beer extracted complex flavours from deep within these special casks – peat smoke and brine, vanilla and floral notes. These, combined with the rich, warming malty flavours of the beer create an utterly unforgettable taste experience.

To frame this unique collaboration between two of Scotland’s most celebrated producers we have commissioned renowned Scottish contemporary landscape artist Ellis O’Connor to create the painting which adorns our packaging. The dynamic energy to be seen in Ellis’ work are her response to observed changes in the landscape. The merging of sea with air, advancing rain and mist, ever changing light - elements that characterise an impression of Islay and the West Coast of Scotland.

We hope you agree that this provides the perfect backdrop to the exceptional beer inside.
