Innis & Gunn set to release two special new products in select stores

    Innis & Gunn, brewers of Canada's favourite Scottish beer, announce the
    release of their limited edition 'Triple Matured' beer and the
    forthcoming release of their 'Connoisseur's Oak Collection' holiday gift

TORONTO, Oct. 14 /CNW/ - Scottish brewer Innis & Gunn today announced the release of their Limited Edition Innis & Gunn 'Triple Matured' beer - which will be available in most provinces nationwide by early October. The family-run brewer also announced that they will be releasing a very limited quantity of a 'Connoisseur's Oak Collection' holiday gift pack in November. "Canada has fast become our biggest export market and we strongly value our consumers need to experience unique new brews and revisit some old favourites," said International Brand Manager Nicol Rennie, who moved to Toronto this year from Scotland to lead Canadian operations.

    Limited Edition 'Triple Matured'

This special beer is a result of selecting some of the very best malts and hops from Scotland and England combined with the unique Innis & Gunn oak maturation technique. Deep burgundy red in colour, Innis & Gunn 'Triple Matured' is carefully matured for 99 days using a limited edition batch of 150 selected American White Oak barrels. The uncommonly lengthy maturation period unlocks the perfect degree of oak character and mellowness that creates a full flavoured yet velvety smooth beer.

Innis & Gunn 'Triple Matured' will be available in limited stock in all Canadian provinces with the exception of Quebec and Nova Scotia.

    The Innis & Gunn 'Connoisseur's Oak Collection' Holiday Gift Pack

"The Innis & Gunn 'Connoisseur's Oak Collection' pack was developed in response to significant customer demand," said Rennie. "Our valued Canadian customers have continually requested our past limited edition beers and sought after Innis & Gunn branded glassware. Hence, we have created a pack that will fully reflect our customers' requests." In time for the holiday season, the 'Connoisseur's Oak Collection' includes:

    1 x Innis & Gunn Original
    1 x Innis & Gunn Limited Edition Rum Cask
    1 x Innis & Gunn Limited Edition IPA
    1 x Innis & Gunn newly designed branded glass

It will be available in Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Manitoba.

                             About Innis & Gunn

Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer was developed by Dougal Sharp in 2003 using a revolutionary technique of aging beers in oak. The American white oak barrels infuse Innis & Gunn's Original Oak Aged Beer with flavours and aromas including toffee, vanilla and citrus, during a lengthy maturation process. This new category has managed to attract many new drinkers to beer both in the UK and across its six major export markets (Canada, USA, Ireland, Sweden, Norway and Finland).
