Scottish microbrewery produces 200 bottles matured in famous Bowmore cask


At only one year old, BrewDog - Aberdeenshire’s newest microbrewery – has developed a limited edition stout set to become one of the most expensive beers in the world.

Released to celebrate the brewery’s first birthday, the Paradox 1968 Islay Cask (10%abv) has been matured for 12 months in a 1968 Bowmore whisky barrel, infusing the stout with the essence and aroma of this high quality vintage. The acclaimed whisky first matured in the barrel sold for an impressive £1500.

200 bottles of the limited edition Paradox 1968 Islay Cask are being released for sale in UK at £40 per bottle (330ml), and over half of the batch have already been pre-ordered by beer connoisseurs from around the world. Part of this batch will arrive in italy shortly and we really look forward to try this unique Beer!

Local designer, Johanna Basford, has designed sophisticated limited edition labels for each of the 200 bottles. Every label has been individually silk screen printed in Johanna’s Dundee studio using hand blended inks in rich gold lacquer and inky black gloss.

We are very pround to be the importers of this fantastic brewery in Italy and to contribute to its growth! These guys really deserve it!
