Edinburgh-based independent brewer Innis & Gunn is releasing an exclusive gift pack of some its famed oak-aged brews, perfect for the epicurean man in your life this Christmas.
The gift pack features three special beers from Innis & Gunn’s portfolio, plus a branded glass:
1)    I&G_Gift_Pack.jpgOriginal (330ml, 6.8%ABV): Innis & Gunn’s multi-award-winning flagship beer.  Packed with lots of biscuit malt and vanilla flavour.  Smooth, mellow and easy to drink.
2)    Treacle Porter (330ml, 7.4%ABV): Adapted from an historic Scottish beer recipe that mixes treacle for depth and richness.  A deep red ale, rich maltiness with notes of orange oil, chocolate and bonfire smoke. Brown sugar, almonds and toffee on the palate with refreshing hop bitterness. Won Silver in the World Beer Championships 2012
3)    Bourbon Stout (330ml, 7.4%ABV) NEW: A red stout brewed with I&G ale malt, rye crystal, roast barley and wheat.  Aromas of roasted chestnuts, rich dried fruit and oaty biscuits, and a warming boozy fruit & nut chocolate kick.
The Innis & Gunn Gift Pack will be available online at Innis & Gunn’s e-shop for £8.50:
Bourbon Stout will go on sale exclusively this winter at Sainsbury’s as a single boxed bottle for £1.79 from and Treacle Porter as a single boxed bottle in Tesco for £1.79.

Notes to Editors:
Innis & Gunn was discovered by accident, and lucky for us that it was. The beer was conceived in 2002 – well not the beer that Innis & Gunn drinkers know and love, but the base beer. Dougal Sharp was asked by Grant’s Distillers to create a distinctive beer that would season whisky barrels for a Cask Ale Reserve whisky. The beer was developed and served its time in the barrel only to be thrown away as a by-product until canny distillery workers realised that it was a brew like no other and far too good to dispense with. Instead, they dispensed the beer into lemonade bottles for the occasional clandestine treat. Transformed by its time in oak, the beer assumed characteristics that were completely unknown in any other beer styles. Sweet toffee and vanilla notes complemented a backbone of mellow malt and fruity hop. This was a beer that was both complex and flavourful and the industry soon sat up to take note.
In 2003, Innis & Gunn (the middle names of CEO Dougal Sharp and his brother Neil) launched with this first and cornerstone beer, Original. Over time, Blonde and Rum Finish have joined the family and Limited Edition releases help Innis & Gunn continue to blaze a trail in oak maturation. Plaudits have abounded for both the beer and the company: Monde Selection medals, World Beer Awards and two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in International Trade have all signalled that, despite an accidental discovery, Innis & Gunn has a nose for beer and a head for business.
Now Scotland’s leading independent beer company, Innis & Gunn has built a loyal band of followers across the globe. Beyond the UK, where it is the fourth biggest specialty beer brand in the retail sector, Innis & Gunn is the best-selling British bottled beer in Canada and number one bottled import ale in Sweden.
