What makes it special?

Originally series three of our IPA project that was brewed just for cask but we liked it so much we decided to bottle it and make it available year round. The Sanda IPAs are well hopped with Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand which gives off powerful gooseberry and passion fruit flavours. The flavours in this beer go oustandingly well with smokey BBQ food.

Sanda Black gets its colour from a de-husked malt and is named after Sanda lighthouse whic is located on the southern tip of The Mull of Kintyre.
