Unique Aspect

Aged for almost a year in some second use Modus Operandi, Burgundy red wine and Scotch Whisky barrels to produce a rich, rounded, tart beer that is intriguing and tasty.

This year we believe it's been aged with copious amounts of Sloes, Blackberries, Raspberries, Mulberrys, Damsons, Plums, Gooseberries, and Elderberries. Need we say more?

Food Pairings

Throw away any sort of cranberry, blueberry, raspberry coulis that you would put on any dish, serve Redwood instead. Alternatively use Redwood in any sauce you are creating with fruit. The acidity has excellent cutting power while the tannins obtained from the barrels mean it can stand up to bold flavours.
Duck is a firm favourite to pair with Redwood however so is blue cheese and chocolate torte - it’s fairly versatile!
