Scottish Golden Beer, cask-matured.

Our Flagship Beer

Innis & Gunn The Original is our flagship beer, the beer on which the brewery was founded back in 2003 when we discovered the incredible effects of cask maturation. A eureka moment; the flavours imparted by Single Malt Whisky casks on this beer gave us a whole new way in brewing and with that Innis & Gunn was born.

We brew a beautiful honey-hued, malty, golden Scottish beer. We then carefully mature it using single malt whisky casks; the best we can source. This maturation lends the beer an incredible smoothness and depth of flavour with hints of vanilla, toffee, and oak.

The result is a truly unique, delicious beer brimming with vanilla and toffee. That richness is perfectly balanced by notes of orange marmalade, citrus, and hints of oak with a very gentle understated bitterness. A delicate, velvety mouthfeel completes the experience. Smooth, refreshing, and decidedly different from the usual.

Now in new packaging, The Original is still the great tasting, award-winning beer it always has been. One that continues to define our spirit of Originality.

The Original uses an expertly balanced combination of three malts; Innis & Gunn Ale Malt, Crystal Malt and Amber Malt. This exquisitely judged combination earned The Original a Grand Gold certification at the 2021 Monde Selection.

Best Served...

The Original is for moments to savour. Your reward at the end of a long day, or the start of a long weekend. It is best enjoyed ice cold from an Innis & Gunn glass.

Great on its own, it also pairs beautifully with full-flavoured foods like a juicy, seared steak or rich, hearty stews. Oh, and with cheese? The next level.

Soooo nice

Absolutely lovely. One of the nicest I’ve ever drank.

I love whiskey… and sort of like beer. Except this beer, which is the first beer I’ve ever tried . Perfect alone, perfect when paired with food. Great in any season.

Excellent beer

I went online to see if I could find what the grain bill is for The Original. Only because this is the best beer I’ve had yet, it was surprising to read the brewery is so young. You guys did very well with this recipe, I haven’t seen you other beers in stores yet but looking forward to trying them. Great job!
