The Barrel Aged Whisky Sour

The Barrel Aged Whisky Sour

We've joined forces with sour beer heroes Vault City and B Corp distillers Bruichladdich to create the ultimate Scottish, sustainable beer.


Discover the barrel aged whisky sour

The beer was brewed in Portobello, Edinburgh, using a mixed fermentation base sour and barrel-aged in Bruichladdich casks for nine months to infuse it with the iconic character of Bruichladdich’s unpeated Islay single malt. The depth of flavour from the casks provides delicate notes of sweet oak and barley, while the addition of hand-picked lemon balm foraged locally from Islay and Scottish heather honey create a perfect balance of tart acidity and smoky-sweetness.

What makes this partnership so special is that it’s the first time Bruichladdich whisky casks have ever left the island of Islay to create something like this. Hear Bruichladdich’s Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, their local forager, James Donaldson, our co-founder Alan Mahon, as well as Vault City's Brewer, Ravi and Co-Founder Steve talk about this new release in this short video.

Complete with a 1000x impact model, every litre sold will fund 1000L of clean water for communities across the world.

It really is something special. Don't miss out on this limited edition, small-batch brew —  available to buy now.
