These batches of Orkney Porter have been patiently aged in Isle of Arran Bere Whisky barrels.
The spirit previously contained in the casks was produced with the ancient Bere barley. This hardy variety of barley is probably one of the world’s oldest cultivated cereals and is grown here on blustery Orkney.
NOTE THAT THE VERSIONS ARE DIFFERENT ABVs (one is 9.5% and one is 10.5%)
9.5% version = BBE April 2020
10.5% version = BBE August 2019
Both batches are still tasting amazing and we will only be able to discount them for a short period of time. After that we will put them in a dark barn to age in the bottle a little longer.
