Over the past 18 months, the Scottish craft brewer has sold more than 40m bottles of beer globally, raised £2.5m in equity crowdfunding and purchased Inveralmond Brewery (now the Innis & Gunn Brewery) in Perth.
It has also opened three beer kitchens and signed a distribution deal for China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, and Innis & Gunn’s lager has seen a 40% growth in volume in the on-trade.
Giving customers support
Innis & Gunn director of sales Crawford Sinclair lauded last year as "transformational" and outlined how the brewer had also doubled the size of its sales team.
He said: “We had an incredibly exciting and undoubtedly transformational 2016 in the business, and our investment in our sales team is a significant step to build on this momentum in the trade and give our customers the support they need to grow their business and ours."
The Scottish brewery launched a limited edition stout in collaboration with Dublin’s Teeling Whiskey earlier this year (February).
Innis & None
Kith & Kin had a 5.8% ABV and was available in 330ml bottles online and on draught at Innis & Gunn Beer Kitchens.
At the beginning of the year (January), the brewer launched a non-alcoholic beer to coincide with an increasing number of Brits choosing to abstain from drinking through January.
Innis & None, is a 0% ABV pale ale, containing Vitamin C and ginseng, and are available in 330ml cans at Innis & Gunn’s beer kitchen sites and online.
