Description

Spruce and pine Viking ale, brewed in 2011 to an imperial strength, specifically to be wood aged in Scottish Whisky Casks from the Isle of Islay’s finest distilleries.

Each year a limited number of barrels are specifically selected and blended to create a unique expression. Each of the barrels bring their own natural yeast & microbes to the mix adding some acidity, sherry and complexity.

Mahogany brown in the glass with Alba’s classic character of spruce, resin & malt is married with peat & oak while maturing in single malt Islay casks.

Unfiltered and un-fined to maintain it's full character. Will pour hazy.

Please note, pricing includes UK shipping but excluded from discount codes. items will be shipped separate from rest of any order for safety.
