TORONTO, ON – The Canadian office of Scotland’s Innis & Gunn has announced details of its release plans for autumn and the holiday season, including a new year-round product, several limited edition releases, and the 2014 edition of the always anticipated I&G holiday gift pack.
Toasted Oak IPA – the newest addition to the core Innis & Gunn range – is a 5.6% abv ale described as a “well-balanced triple-hop-infused brew matured for 41 days over oak, giving it a rich, rounded quality much like an authentic IPA of the 1800s”. Available now in six-packs in Alberta and New Brunswick, and in individual bottles in British Columbia, it will also be included in the gift pack described below.
First up on the limited edition seasonal front is Rare Oak Pale Ale, a 5.8% abv ale aged over Scottish oak, and flavoured with elderflower and sweet gale along with Super Styrian and Whitbread Golding hops. The resulting “crisp, aromatic and light” beer is available now in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Saskatchewan, and will be released in Ontario in mid-November.
Following later in November in the same provinces will be Scotch Whisky Porter, a 7.4% abv strong porter brewed with four different malts and a touch of molasses to give a “rich maltiness with notes of orange oil, chocolate and bonfire smoke”. And coming later in the fall/winter (exact date still TBC) is Barrelmaster’s Reserve: Highland Cask, a 7.4% abv Scotch ale aged in 18 year-old Highland whisky casks for 60 days, imparting a “surprisingly delicate, fragrant aroma of spice and rich toffee.”
Last but not least, the Innis & Gunn Gift Pack 2014 will arrive on shelves in time for holiday shopping, and will feature 330 ml bottles of four brands – Innis & Gunn Original, Toasted Oak IPA, Rum Finish and Bourbon Stout. Distribution is planned for Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, PEI and Saskatchewan, with prices starting at $14.95.
