Scotland’s first alcohol-free dark beer Wheesht launched by Harviestoun | Witchcraft Owner Gets £ 2.5million Covid Loan | SME focus: engineers keep their jobs despite the crisis
A Scottish craft brewer has launched what he claims to be the country’s first alcohol-free dark beer.
Named after a Scottish word meaning “calm”, Wheesht is a dark ruby 0.0% vol beer created by the innovative team of brewers at Harviestoun Brewery, based in Alva near Stirling.
It is described as “rich in aromas of roasted chocolate, sweet biscuit and dried fruits”.
Wheesht is available for purchase direct from Harviestoun’s online store in cases of 12 and 24 bottles, including next day delivery throughout the UK.
Wheesht is also available for purchase at select Sainsbury’s stores in Scotland including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Stirling, Livingston, Irvine, Prestwick, Hawick, Strathaven, Linlithgow, Kelso, East Kilbride, Hamilton, Kirkaldy and Aberdeenshire.
Stuart Cail, who has been a master brewer at Harviestoun Brewery for over 20 years, said: “The wheesht was a real challenge for the brewing team because it is unlike anything they’ve brewed before.
“We wanted to create an alcohol-free beer full of flavor and aroma. It took us a while to perfect ourselves, but it’s worth the wait. Now we’re encouraging people to take on the “Dry January” challenge with the country’s first alcohol-free dark beer.
“The toasted malt and oats create a really pleasant base which gives body and notes of sweet dried fruit. This is complemented by the fruity and spicy aromas of the hops.
