Here at Angus Dundee we always try to come up with sustainable ways to help the environment and one of the things we do is to upcycle our over-mature or often referred to 'spent' casks.
Usually these casks are re-used as water butts or garden tubs; this time however, our matured casks were re-used to brew specially crafted beer. We sent our matured casks over to a US hand craft beer company Saranac, who specially requested our casks to brew their 'single malt barrel scotch ale'.
To make it a Scotch ale or 'real ale' they required casks from Scotland for a second fermentation process and what better than using an oak barrel. Not just any oak barrel, a matured whisky oak barrel, specially selected by our master distiller Robert Flemming to infuse it's unique flavours and characteristics to the ale.
