I came across this ale in Fort William on holiday in 2004. I loved it, I found it hard to find in England, then I found that Waitrose did it. I moved to a town with no Waitrose. No Fraoch. This weekend while in the Wye valley I went into a Morrisons and to my delight I found that Fraoch was still in production. I love this ale.
