I&G scoops top awards
Innis & Gunn's managing director, Dougal Sharp, said: "We are absoutely delighted with this achievement. To be acknowledged for excellence among Scottish producers is a huge honour."
Innis & Gunn started in 2003 when Dougal Sharp discovered a revolutioanry process for creating oak-aged beers. Asked by William Grant to produce a special beer to seaon the inside of whisky casks, to produce an "ale cask-finished whisky", the beer was due to be discarded as a bi-product until distillery workers told Dougal of its delicious flavour transformation during the maturation inside oak barrels. Since this discovery, Innis & Gunn has become Scotland's leading independent beer company and Oak Aged Beer is now the best-selling British bottled beer in Canada and the Number Two bottled import ale in Sweden.
