    2013 Whisky Aged Beers

    Introducing No 1 Jack and No 2 Jim – limited edition oak aged beers.

    For the last 12 months two Bourbon casks (one previously containing Jack Daniels & the other Jim Beam) both filled with export strength Brodie’s Prime have been maturing in our cellar. They are both strong, dark, rich, complex ales, aged for one year.

    The beer was brewed on 26th October 2012, put into cask on 13th November 2012 and then bottled on 15th November 2013. Now bottled the beers are ready to drink, they come in 330ml bottles at 8.5% abv, the style of beer means that they will also benefit from further ageing, Head Brewer Matt also suggests blending the two… No 1 Jack and No 2 Jim are on sale at The Beer Hall at the brewery and from our online shop.

  • Named after the year in which Booths was founded, 1847 Winter Ale is a limited edition, own label beer, brewed by us exclusively for Booths.

    Following the success of Festival Ale, launched in the spring, we were approached again by the retailer to brew another exclusive beer, this time with more of a winter feel. 1847 Winter Ale is a 6% abv deep red ale brewed with Beech-smoked malt and mixed spice, “a perfect match with a mince pie and a log fire” suggests Anne Jones, Sales Manager at the brewery.

    The beer is on sale in all of Booths 29 stores, located in the North West of England, from now until stocks last.

  • Windermere Pale beat 84 other bottled beers in the Society of Independent Brewers North West beer competition, to be declared overall champion bottled beer.

    Windermere Pale, which was only launched in bottle in September, has also won a Great Taste award.
