The Black Isle Brewing Co is a small intensely independent organic brewery in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.
Some remnants of brewing were discovered during renovations to Old Allangrange. This fine 18th century house lies in one of the first areas to be cultivated on the Black Isle, and many of the places names in the area are derived from the Gaelic language, thus Allangrange, or Allann-Chrain, translates as "a fertile field of corn".
The early statistical account of 1790 states that the area "yields a much greater quantity of grain that is sufficient to support the inhabitants" which "is found to be of superior quality to the brewer".
At one time there were three breweries in Inverness and another in Cromarty - sadly they no longer exist. But, carrying on that tradition, Black Isle Brewery Ltd - small and intensely independent - is dedicated to producing quality beer in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.
Mission is to produce a range of top quality organic beers packaged in recycled materials. The barley and hops used are grown on organic farms, without artificial fertilisers or herbicides. We at Black Isle Brewery believe that our beer is the best for both you and the environment.
