Time for strawberries and cream?
Not here, we’re not sure that they really go with a cool craft beer!
We know that for the week or so it’ll be all about the tennis on top of the final matches in the World Cup in Russia, so if you’re not into tennis and football you’ll need to be looking for something else to do. Thankfully the weather looks like it’s going to remain warm and dry so perfect for BBQ’s.
If you’re looking for a Speyside Brewery craft beer to enjoy in the sun and has a fruity flavour then try Tropical Forres. This beer is brewed as a tribute to our hometown of Forres and is a hoppy delight. It has the fruity aroma of a mango and grapefruit drink that is often found in the Congo. Tropical Forres is packed with Simcoe and Citra hops that make this beer taste like fruit juice!
Light, crisp and invigorating with a subtle citrus flavour tempered by a wheaty finish all wrapped up with a modest suggestion of vanilla.
But for something extra special this summer our ScotcHop IPA Whisky Cask Beer which is a collaboration between us and one of the largest independent distilleries in Scotland resulted in a scientific process and recipe that turns whisky-cask ageing of beer on its head. Our specially-designed IPA has matured in whisky casks to impart its resinous hop flavour into the wood, with the casks then used to create a unique IPA whisky. Together we created a perfect marriage for both the whisky and our ScotcHop IPA.
ScotcHop IPA has a pine citrus aroma that is reminiscent of whisky casks sleeping in their warehouse. The initial taste is quite a floral experience with the flavour of the wood to follow. The balance of tastes achieved results in a clean and crisp beer.
