Scottish brewery Innis & Gunn has launched a new limited edition stout in collaboration with Dublin's Teeling Whiskey. 

The stout, called Kith & Kin (5.8% ABV), has been aged in Teeling’s Small Batch Irish Whiskey barrels. It is available in 330ml bottles online and on draught at Innis & Gunn Beer Kitchens.  

Innis & Gunn founder Dougal Gunn Sharp said: “We’ve always held a great deal of admiration for Teeling’s ethos of quality and innovation.”

‘Uncompromising flavour’

“Like us, they are uncompromising when it comes to flavour and I was intrigued to see what we could create together. When we first tasted the stout, with its rich notes of chocolate and coconut, it was clear we were on to a winner.”

Barrels used to create the stout have been returned to Teeling, which is currently using them in the maturation of a stout-finished whiskey, which it will release in spring 2017.

Stand-alone brews

Innis & Gunn has launched a series of stand-alone brews recently, including a limited edition Vintage 7.7% beer​, a beer made with water “harvested” from clouds above the Scottish highlands​, and a non-alcoholic pale ale​.

It raised £2.5m in a recent Crowdcube campaign​, called AdventureCapital, smashing its initial target of £1m in just three days. The brewery sold 4.79% of its share capital to 2012 investors once it had reached its target.

The brewery’s flagship lager was named one of the UK’s top 100 drinks brands in The Morning Advertiser​'s Drinks List 2016​.
