We have just sent the latest batch of Angus Og off to Aldi's for this year's Winter Beer Festival in their Scottish Stores! We have been very busy recently getting orders together for shipment to Switzerland, France and Germany. There was also an order in from our old customer in Japan!! Our recent release of our 2 new additions to our range made partly using grist from Kilchoman Distillery, a dark version and a pale version, have been going so well that we have brewed more of them at the expense of some of the others!!
