Everything we do is designed to push the boundaries of brewing. Put simply, our purpose is to make beer better. The Original is our flagship; our leader in this noble quest. Rich, golden Scottish beer, cask-matured for smoothness. Cask-matured using what? The best; Single Malt whisky casks. Not only that, we use our own unique Innis & Gunn cask maturation process to do so.
The result is a truly luxurious beer, brimming with vanilla and toffee. That richness is perfectly balanced by notes of orange marmalade and hints of oak. In fact, the beer in general has an understated bitterness running throughout it. A sumptuously velvety mouthfeel completes the experience of a beer decidedly different from the usual.
Now in new packaging, The Original is still the same fantastically rich and flavoursome beer that it always has been. One that continues to epitomise the goals of our brewery.
This award-winning brew uses an expertly balanced combination of three malts; Innis & Gunn Ale Malt, Crystal Malt and Amber Malt. Styrian hops, known for their aromatic and refined character, bring a touch of bitterness. This exquisitely judged combination earned The Original a Grand Gold certification at the 2021 Monde Selection.
