- A True Original -  


Originality is at the core of our business. In the beers we make, in the way we make them, and in the way we celebrate the originality of others. Spearheading the barrel-ageing movement from Scotland, The Original bourbon barrel-aged beer is the one that started it all back when our Owner and Master Brewer Dougal Gunn Sharp founded the brewery in 2003.


Ten year later, in 2013 our range expanded to include our award-winning Craft Lager, Session IPA and a wide array of craft brewed and barrel-aged beers.





The hardest question we ever have to answer is “What’s The Original like?” because really, it’s not like anything else. A beer ahead of its time, ‘The Original’ truly lives up to its name; a challenger brand that established itself well before being a challenger brand was a thing.


Matured with first-fill bourbon barrels, the oak imparts a complex, richness that gives the beer both a distinctive character and unique flavour profile. Combined with our Scottish provenance, ‘The Original’ delivers a truly original sip and savour drinking experience. The Original is best enjoyed with those who mean the most to you, a reward well-earned and drinking it is time well spent.





Having built a reputation for a flavour-packed, specialist barrel-aged beer, we launched Innis & Gunn Lager Beer in 2013. Being Innis & Gunn, it’s not like other lagers. We added a 5th ingredient – Naked Golden Oats – to create depth and texture, and zesty aromatic hops for a hint of citrus to deliver perfect refreshment. It’s already become a firm favourite amongst both drinkers and judging panels, winning multiple awards for its quality and distinctive flavour.


In addition to our range of IPAs and limited-edition brews, we have big plans at Innis & Gunn. Our brewery in Perth, Scotland is home to innovation and barrel-ageing with next year heralding a new large scale brewery in our hometown of Edinburgh, the first new large brewery to be built in the capital in 150 years. Watch this space!
