Wester Spirit Co. developed ideas for the collaboration, working closely with Drygates’s lead brewer - Pete Sansom. The concept behind the collaboration beer was to create a Spiced Scotch Ale that was based on Wester Spirit Co’s spiced rum. The same spices, ginger, citrus and vanilla were added to the boil to infuse the flavours. Raisins and figs were soaked in Wester Spiced Rum for over a week and then added to the fermenter to further infuse Wester’s flavours into the Scotch Ale.
