UK: Harviestoun Brewery brings 'whisky-beer' to UK
Harviestoun Brewery has lined up the launch of its line of beers aged in Scotch whisky casks for the UK.
The Scottish micro-brewery yesterday (13 March) announced the UK release of its Ola Dubh range. The 8% abv dark beers, which launched in the US last month, will be available in the UK from September.
Ola Dubh, which is Gaelic for Black Oil, will initially be available in three expressions - the first release will be of "small batches" aged in casks formerly used to mature Highland Park 12 Year Old, Highland Park 16 Year Old and Highland Park 30 Year Old. Further variants are planned for the future, the company said.
"Few beers can combine with the tastes and flavours characteristics of Highland Park as well as Old Engine Oil," said Harviestoun's managing director, Stephen Crawley. "That is because it has plenty of robust character of its own which the whisky complements."
