Dougal Sharp was asked by Grant’s Distillers to create a beer that would be used to season whiskey barrels for a new cask ale whiskey they would launch. The beer was initially discarded, until it was realised it could be used as a beer on its own, transformed by the barrels which it is matured in for 77 days.
