We are the UK's premier organic brewery making world class beers from the finest organic malt and hops grown on farms without chemicals, as nature intended.
Based near Inverness, the capital of the Highlands of Scotland, it is our beautiful, unspoilt, unpolluted, wild, and not a little bit wet highland home - and we love it! We have our own organic farm where we grow malting barley for brewing. We even have our own brewery house cow, called Molly, who eats the malt from the brewery mash tun and gives us 20 pints of fresh creamy milk every day.
The Black Isle is famous for the quality of its malting barley and it was here on our farm, at Allangrange, that Sir Roderick Mackenzie recorded, in the Statistical Account of 1790, that the land was first cultivated for growing barley because it was found to be of "superior quality for the brewer and distiller." Thanks Rod!
We live, work and brew delicious organic beer at Allangrange, translated from the Gaelic as "a fertile field of corn." We see ourselves and what we do, as a natural link between our traditional cultural heritage and the contemporary craft beer world.
A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.
Style: Pale Ale
Believed to have originated from Edinburgh in the 1800s, the brewing of Scotch ales is now more of a focus for the US craft brewers than for those in its homeland. This beer, however, is a distillation of all that is good in Scotland. A liquid fruit cake with a malty foundation and a rich spice finish, this will fill your palate and astound you for minutes as you unlock the multi-layers of flavour.
A blinding pairing with roast lamb and equally good with a dram of Glenmorangie Lasanta.
