Those innovative Scottish brewers Innis & Gunn have gone and done it again. This time, they've collaborated with famous smoky whisky makers Laphroaig to create a limited-edition beer: 'Whisky Cask Ale'.
It's available from the Innis & Gunn online shop now, and when it's gone, it's gone.

Only 3,400 330ml bottles of this 7.4% amber ale have been made, with each bottle presented in a gift-box created in collaboration with famous Scottish artist Hope Blamire, which was created to evoke the atmosphere of Islay.
Dougal Gunn Sharp, founder of Innis and Gunn said, “Working with Hope Blamire completes a strong Scottish trio of raw Scottish craftsmanship." He says Blamire beautifully captures the rugged beauty of Islay and the packaging shows drinkers that they are in for something special.
Made for both whisky and beer lovers alike, the Whisky Cask Ale is slowly matured in Laphroaig 10-year-old single malt Scotch whisky casks. The signature Laphroaig expression is what gives the ale its unique flavours, extracting flavours from within the whisky casks during its 12-week maturation.
Apparently the beer has aromas of peat smoke and brine, iconic to Laphroaig, with hints of vanilla and floral notes combined with Innis & Gunn's hallmark deep, malty flavour.
Chris Richardson, global director of Laphroaig whisky, said, “We’re excited to partner with another iconic Scottish drinks brand to bring together the richly peated flavour of Laphroaig with Innis & Gunn’s bold amber beer."
The ‘Islay Whisky Cask’ limited-edition is perfect for anyone who loves the unforgettable flavour of Laphroaig and wants to experience it married with the deep, rich flavours of one of Scotland’s top beers, Richardson says.
