A great drinks discovery in Dundee
Dundee Heritage Trust launches RRS Discovery
As an independent charitable museum trust, Dundee Heritage Trust is always looking for innovative funding streams, and in 2014 Operations Director Mark Munsie created an ale under the RRS Discovery ‘Smoked in History’ label. Brewed in collaboration with Alechemy Ales in Livingston and BrewDog Dundee, it was made using wood from the ship removed during a recent restoration.
A dark, porter-style beer with flavours of chocolate, amber and coffee, it’s available at Discovery Point Museum and at BrewDog Dundee. Also available is Discovery Whisky, a 12-year-old single malt in a jute bag stamped with the mark of the 1901 British Antarctic Expedition led by Captain Scott.
