Innis & Gunn kicks announce £3m brewery build
Innis & Gunn has announced a £3m initiative to build an all-in-one brewery bottling line and barrel store, producing up to 7,000 bottles of beer an hour, financed by the sale of beer bonds.

It will be the first custom-built facility to be built by the brewer, which is adopting an unconventional funding mechanism to tap into saver demand for high interest (albeit risky) returns.

An Innis & Gunn spokesperson said: "We’re delighted to announce that, at last, we are going to be building the first Innis & Gunn brewery.

“The time is right for us to bring brewing, barrel maturation and bottling under one roof in a home of our own where we can install the special equipment we need to craft beers with even greater depth of flavour. We have identified a site in South-East Scotland, and will share more details with you soon."

Innis & Gunn is currently reliant on external breweries for production.

a marginally better looking building than Stewart Brewing's new home. Shame the beer isn't as good, though!

This is great to see. This proves the 'craft ale' industry is alive and well in Scotland, and not just three guys in a lock-up anymore. The mega-breweries have clearly got a match on their hands. In recent times, we've seen Stewart Brewing move in to new purpose-built premises, Brew Dog build a new factory, and now Innis & Gunn moving their production in-house. The Scottish Whisky Industry has, likewise, seen a recent spate of new distillery projects. Great to see. Good luck all!
