A Bit of History

The Highlanders’ gift of “Second Sight” was much in evidence when our Head Brewer decided to name this award winning Stout – Black Gold. The name takes for its inspiration the name given to the oil which flows from the North Sea, hence the offshore rig on the label. “Black Gold” were also the first words uttered by our brewing team when the beer was first tasted at the brewery.

Over the years Black Gold has garnered an impressive collection of Gold medals – ranging from SIBA Supreme Champion Beer in 2009, won against stiff competition from over 450 breweries in the UK, to CAMRA Winter Beer of Britain for Stouts in 2012. Other notable awards include the 2 Star Great Taste Award in 2010 Beer of the year for the Vegetarian Society, again in 2010.

A wee word about second sight. Highlanders have always been known for the gift of “Second Sight” and Seers were considered important members for society. One of the most famous Highland Seers was the Brahan Seer (The Gaelic Nostradamus) who according to folklore was living in Scotland in the 17th century. However little is known of the man behind the myth, or even if he really existed.

Enjoy With

Great with a Sunday roast, especially beef.  Also a perfect pairing with a strong stilton.  Fantastic for marinated stewing beef – the gravy is to die for!

Best served at 11-12 degrees.
