Fuller's releases new barrel-aged beer

11 August, 2011

Fuller’s has launched the third in its series of Brewer’s Reserve barrel-aged beers.

Brewer’s Reserve No 3 has spent 800 days maturing in old Auchentoshan whisky barrels.

Limited edition, numbered bottles are being sold through the Fuller’s brewery shop and online, priced £7.50.

The beer is in 50cl bottles and has a strength of 9% abv.

Head brewer John Keeling said: “We used a complex beer to begin with, and by ageing in the Auchentoshan whiskey barrels, we have added an extra dimension with a smoothness and texture unlike anything else out there.”

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
