Great Scots

Our Great Scots range currently consists of 4 different styles of beers, with brand names linked to historical Scottish figures with links to our local area around Loch Leven.

  • Outlaw King (Golden Ale) named after Robert the Bruce who was buried nearby in Dunfermline.  Outlaw King conveniently happens to be the title chosen by Netflix for their recent block-buster film about Robert the Bruce released in November 2018.
  • Warrior Queen (IPA) is named after Mary Queen of Scots who was imprisoned for almost a year in Lochleven Castle before making her dramatic escape.
  • Shining Knight (Craft Lager) is named after Andrew Carnegie, the renowned Scottish-American industrialist and philanthropist, who was born nearby in Dunfermline. August 2019 will see the centenary of his death.
  • King Slayer (Scottish Ale) is named after Gabriel de Montgomery who accidentally killed the French King in a joust in 1559. The Montgomery family have been associated with Loch Leven for many generations.
