Gose soured on Wild Scottish Bilberries with Heather, Lemon Zest, Raspberries and Blueberries.
Originating from 1930’s era Scotland, the Glasgow Smile was a signature performed on those unlucky enough to suffer at the hands of the Glasgow Razor Gangs. Given to rival gang members or the unfortunate victims of muggings, the act slices a person from the corners of the mouth towards each ear. While seeming like ancient history, in 2008 knife related injuries were reported every six hours and the Glasgow Smile was executed at minimum once a week.
Soured on Wild Bilberries grown in the Caledonian Forest of the Scots Pines, brewed with Heather (an ingredient used in Scotland beers for 5,000 years), Lemon Zest and Black Sea Salt, then fermented with Raspberries and Blueberries.
Maraschino sweet cherry, jammy raspberry and lemon zest sharpness aromatics. Bilberry skin and Heather come across as a balancing slight tannin earthiness. Hint of citrus and underripe raspberry tartness gives way to a mouthwateringly dry champagne finish with savory salinity.
