Ola Dubh 30 At The Edinburgh Whisky Stramash

3rd May  2013
Harviestoun Brewery to debut new Ola Dubh 30 at the Edinburgh Whisky Stramash

I know there are a few of you who are like myself and enjoy one or two craft beers so I thought this one would be of interest to you as it is a very limited release craft beer with a single malt whisky connection.

As I already have mentioned HERE a few days ago the Edinburgh Whisky Stramash will be returning to The Surgeon’s Hall in Edinburgh on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May. The Stramash is an encounter of many elements and experiences and you can expect the opportunity to sample if you wish, a huge array of amazing whiskies from Scotland and abroad.

Also this year at the Stramash you will find the independent Scottish brewer Harviestoun Brewery who will be celebrating their 30th birthday in style by treating ticket holders to its latest whisky inspired brew.

You may already be familiar with the Harviestoun Brewery Ola Dubh range which includes Ola Dubh 12, 16 and 18 which have been aged in casks that have formerly been used to mature Highland Park. The Ola Dubh 12, 16 and 18 were aged in oak casks formerly used to mature Highland Park 12, 16 and 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky respectively.

Ola Dubh 30 is the first limited edition released by the brewers to have used first fill sherry cask supplied by the famed Highland Park distillery based on Orkney and then cask conditioned. Just two casks of this brew have been made, amounting to just 145 pints. A must try for whisky and beer fans alike, Olah Dubh 30 is so rare that it will only be available to buy in thirds of a pint.

Harviestoun will also be bringing an intriguing 'Secret Barrell Aged-Brew' exclusively for visitors to the Edinburgh Whisky Stramash, born out of the brewery’s love for experimentation with combinations of beer and Whisky casks.

Scott Martin, co-founder of the Edinburgh Whisky Stramash commented: "We love the pioneering attitude of the Harviestoun team which is completely in keeping with the spirit of the Stramash and we know this is something our adventurous audience is going to love trying out."

Ewan McCowen, Marketing Manager, Harviestoun added: "As far as we're concerned beer and whisky is a match made in heaven and the Edinburgh Whisky Stramash is the perfect place to trial our latest creations."

Famed for its mad cap pioneering, Edinburgh Whisky Stramash will bring the wonderful world of whisky to the masses in new and innovative ways by exciting the purists, tempting the interested and intriguing the indifferent once again.

The Stramash will be held on three sessions over the 25th and 26th of May 2013.
  • Saturday 25th of May 2013 12pm – 4pm
  • Saturday 25th of May 2013 5pm – 9pm
  • Sunday 26th of May 2013 1pm – 5pm
