Almost 13 years ago, Innis & Gunn serendipitously came into being.
We were faced with a tough decision at the time of either ploughing all of our available money into a brewery, or instead focusing on building a brand and exploring different approaches to oak maturation to produce remarkable flavours in our beer.
We knew we had a very special beer on our hands and wanted to share it with as many people as we could, as quickly as possible. So we went out and started introducing our beer to friends around the world and now, thanks to all of you, we are where we are today, at the beginning of our next chapter.
We have always chosen to do things differently. Up until now we have used our own recipes, raw materials, yeast and equipment (including our proprietary maturation vessels, the Oakerators®), inside other companies’ breweries.
However, today we’re delighted to announce that, at last, we are going to be building the first Innis & Gunn brewery.
The time is right for us to bring brewing, barrel maturation and bottling under one roof in a home of our own where we can install the special equipment we need to craft beers with even greater depth of flavour. We have identified a site in South-East Scotland, and will share more details with you soon.
Dougal, our Founder and Master Brewer:
“Over the years I have come to realise that those of us who work for Innis & Gunn are only one small part of a much larger Innis & Gunn community. That Innis & Gunn community is made up of those of you who enjoy our beer, blog about our beer, dream about our beer, chat to us on Facebook and Twitter and send us photographs of you drinking our beer. It is this community, male and female, of all ages, in dozens of countries who have made Innis & Gunn what it is today.”
We’re excited for you to join us on the next step of this journey and look forward to tasting many new beers with you. Keep an eye on Facebook for updates and to find out how you can be part of it.
