A dram fine beer collaboration between Perthshire-based craft beer maker Inveralmond Brewery and The Glenturret Distillery is enjoying a second round of success after a new batch was released due to popular demand.
The brewery and the distillery have issued a second batch of Ooskabeer, which sold out just weeks after being launched last November. Ooskabeer blends the distilling skills of The Glenturret Distillery, home to The Famous Grouse Experience in Crieff, with the brewing skills of Inveralmond, located in nearby Perth, to produce a slowly matured beer infused with the delicate aromas and flavours of whisky. Inveralmond provided premium Scotch Ale which was then slowly matured in Glenturret’s whisky barrels.
Ooskabeer Batch #2 has been partly distributed in Switzerland, with the remaining 100 cases available for sale direct to the public by Inveralmond and Glenturret Distillery. After the success of Ooskabeer Batch #1, Inveralmond is encouraging craft beer lovers to get their orders in quickly.
Fergus Clark, Managing Director of Inveralmond Brewery, commented:
“Ooskabeer is the perfect coming together of two Perthshire companies who live and breathe great products and heritage. Glenturret provided the casks while we added our brewing expertise and our premium Scotch Ale. We’re always looking to experiment with our beers and this one was a great success, having been snapped up by distributors in the UK and Europe. The infusion of malt whisky gives the beer an extra warmth and richness. Such was the demand that we’ve launched Batch #2, which we know is going to be just as much of a hit.”
