INNIS & GUNN
About INNIS & GUNN
Innis & Gunn believes it is Scotland’s most award winning brewer ever and its beer is widely available in the UK; in supermarkets and in bars. It is a leader in the global craft beer movement and enjoyed by drinkers around the world.
Drinkers are gradually losing interest in big mass-produced beers  and the management believe they are looking for beers like Innis & Gunn, craft beers with depth of flavour and real character. This trend is accelerating . Last year Innis & Gunn sold over 20 million bottles of beer, up 31% on the prior year. Over a quarter of sales value came from the UK. But great beer knows no borders so 72% of sales were over seas, mainly to North America and Scandinavia. Innis and Gunn has begun to sell in South Africa, Russia and France and, in October 2014, sent their first products to South Korea. Innis & Gunn has already won The Queen’s Award for International Trade twice .
The company now believes that the time is right to bring brewing, barrel maturation and bottling under one roof in a home of its own where the business can install the special equipment needed to craft beers with even greater depth of flavour. A site has been identified in South-East Scotland.
Investors in the BeerBond will receive cash interest at 7.25% (gross) per annum on their funds for four years and will have the option to either redeem their BeerBonds or continue to hold their BeerBonds (and receive the same rate of interest) for one year successive periods at maturity.
The Company is going to use the money raised by the Innis & Gunn BeerBond to build a brewery, bottling line and barrel store that will make a new generation of Innis & Gunn beers and is in advanced negotiations to buy a piece of land in South East Scotland on which to build.
The Principal and final Interest payment will be repaid on the fourth anniversary of the Bond’s issue date. Directors have the right to pay investors’ money back to them before the end of the four year initial fixed-term.
