Innis & Gunn has launched an investment scheme to help raise £3 million to build a new brewery, allowing customers to buy “BeerBonds”.
Scottish-based brewer, Innis & Gunn, has launched an investment scheme to help raise £3 million to build a new brewery.
Innis & Gunn, established 13 years ago, have, until this point, be using their own recipes, equipment (including their propriety maturation vessels, the Oakerators®) and materials to brew their beer inside other companies’ breweries. The £3 million raised from the investment scheme will allow the Company to build their first brewery.
The Company has already identified a site in South-East Scotland for the new brewery and will release more information about this soon.
Innis & Gunn is offering “BeerBonds” to fund the new brewery
The Company plans to fund the brewery by offering “BeerBonds”. A cash BeerBond™ offering an interest rate of 7.25% (gross) per annum in cash is available. Alternatively, individuals may prefer the “BeerBucks” BeerBond™ which offers an interest rate of 9% (gross) per annum in “BeerBucks” that can be redeemed against beer at Innis & Gunn’s online shop.
Dougal Gunn Sharp, Innis & Gunn’s Founder and Master Brewer, said, “Over the years I have come to realise that those of us who work for Innis & Gunn are only one small part of a much larger Innis & Gunn community. That Innis & Gunn community is made up of those of you who enjoy our beer, blog about our beer, dream about our beer, chat to us on Facebook and Twitter and send us photographs of you drinking our beer. It is this community, male and female, of all ages, in dozens of countries who have made Innis & Gunn what it is today.”
