TORONTO, ON – Innis & Gunn has announced details of the Canadian release of a limited edition beer created using casks from each of Scotland’s five whisky regions.
Malt Whisky Trail is a 7.4% strong oak-aged ale that is described as follows:
At the base of Malt Whisky Trail is a 90/- (ninety shilling) ale – or ‘wee heavy’ – a traditional style of medium-bodied Scottish amber ale that Innis & Gunn found robust enough to handle the more assertive malts, without overwhelming the subtler flavour notes. Innis & Gunn matured the beer in casks sourced from five distilleries in the Lowlands, Highlands, Speyside, Islay and Campbeltown for 30 days before blending it to produce a rich, balanced Scottish ale with layers of complex and delicate flavour.
Innis & Gunn Malt Whisky Trail is being released this month in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan, with a suggested retail price of $4.95 per 330 ml bottle.
