- A Monstrously Good deal for Loch Ness Brewery

A Montrously Good deal for Loch Ness Brewery

Congratulations to the Loch Ness Brewery, based in Drumnadrochit, which has got its beer into 49 Marks & Spencer outlets throughout Scotland.

Commenting on the latest supply deal, Stephen Crossland, managing director of Loch Ness Brewery, said: "We are delighted to see Loch Ness Brewery beers on the shelves of M&S, which is famed for it's high quality produce.

"We think it is important to see Scottish brewers supplying national supermarkets with quality items, which are made in this country.

"The waters of Loch Ness are famed across the world, and it's great to see retailers recognise the value of a beer that is produced here in the Highlands, using the water that runs into the Loch."

The company now sells a range of beers with titles which play with the word "Ness" like Red Ness, Hoppy Ness, Wilder Ness, Dark Ness, Light Ness ands Caith Ness - that last one, (see the bottle illustrated on the right) is named after an area even further north than Drumnadrochit. It is described on the bottle as being made with "added porridge oats and Caithness honey". This is a new beer and others in the pipeline are Spookiness, Nessum Korma and Festive Ness (with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg).
