Innis & Gunn Launches Tequila Cask Blonde for a Refreshing Summer in Toronto

Toronto ON – Toronto beer enthusiasts have a new reason to celebrate this summer as award-winning Scottish brewer Innis & Gunn introduces their latest seasonal release, Tequila Cask Blonde. Combining the smoothness of a blonde ale with the unique flavors of tequila, this innovative beer is set to become a summer favorite in the Greater Toronto Area.

Tequila Cask Blonde is matured using specially selected Mexican tequila casks, imparting distinctive citrus and spice notes to the beer. The oak from the casks adds a balancing sweetness and depth, ensuring a refreshing and accessible drink for all. The recommended serving suggestion is with a slice of pink grapefruit, enhancing the beer’s citrus character and providing an extra layer of refreshment.

Dougal Sharp, Founder and Master Brewer of Innis & Gunn, expressed his excitement about the new release. “Innovation always drives us forward, and we relish offering drinkers something they will genuinely like, that’s got a real point of difference. The rise of tequila has been meteoric, and so we wanted to express some of the attitude and flavors of this incredible spirit category in this beer,” said Sharp.

He continued, “This is Tequila Beer made properly with real tequila casks as the name suggests. Innis & Gunn Tequila Cask Blonde is the real deal – it doesn’t imitate the other tequila beers merely infused with tequila and citrus flavors. We are delighted by the complexity and zest of such a pale colored and wildly refreshing beer.”

Perfect for summer gatherings, Tequila Cask Blonde pairs exceptionally well with seasonal foods such as crispy fish tacos, spiced chicken burgers, and street corn salads. Whether you’re hosting a BBQ, relaxing on a patio, or enjoying a poolside day with friends, this premium beer is the ideal companion.

Tequila Cask Blonde is now available in 4x500ml cans for $12.99 and can be found at select independent beer and grocery retailers across the GTA.

In addition to this exciting new release, Innis & Gunn is updating its flagship portfolio range. The Original and Caribbean Rum Cask beers are now available in a new 4x500ml can format, replacing the previous 6x330ml bottle pack, with a 20% price reduction for consumers, priced at $12.99.

As the summer season heats up, Toronto residents can look forward to enjoying the innovative and refreshing Tequila Cask Blonde, a testament to Innis & Gunn’s commitment to quality and originality in brewing.
