Fyne Ales Highlander

The Fyne Ales brewery was set up in 2001 using the redundant milking parlour in the traditional farm buildings at Achadunan, Cairndow, Scotland.

The first commercial brew was on St. Andrews day that year. The design for the brewery and the impact which the brewing makes on the locality are arranged to have as little environmental impact as possible.

Water is sourced from a burn above the brewery overlooking Glen Fyne and the head of Loch Fyne

Highlander is a strong traditional ale with intense malt flavours and a citrus hop aroma. A smooth beer with a well-rounded, distinctly moreish appeal. Deeply golden amber in coulour with an off white head, Highlander is very pleasant to the nose and to the palatte. Fruity notes mingle with gentle spices creating a harmonious blend of flavours finishing with a dry ginger hit in the throat. Smooth and malty, this is indeed a fine ale from Fyne Ales.

  • ABV 4.8%
