Fraoch 22 - Auchentoshan Vintage Cask Collaboration

Fraoch 22

The time is finally here…

After a year in barrel, 6 months in the tank and loads of suspense, our Fraoch 22 is now available.

Trust us, it has been well worth the wait. The beer has gone through various flavour profiles in it's life so far and now it's become something really special.

So the waiting game is over, it's been bottled into 75cl Belgian beer bottles and sealed with a resealable contraption called a Zork.

This 11% abv version of our Fraoch is matured in ex-sherry casks previously used to mature Auchentoshan single malt. Brewed as an 11% Fraoch Heather Ale then matured in ex-sherry & single malt whisky casks giving a rich creamy brew, full of notes of sherry & barley wine with a wood & whisky finish.

Weighing in at 11% abv we thought the zork was a wise edition. This is a beer to be savoured and shared with friends. Once opened, if kept in the fridge and re-zorked it should keep for a couple of weeks.

With a fair amount of this limited edition due for export to U.S.A & Sweden you'll need to be quick to stock up on this. It keeps till 2021 too, so one to drink immediately and some to store for special occasions would be a wise idea!

Limited edition of 12,000 individually numbered bottles.

Catch them while you can!
