Boutique Bar Brands Add Gotlands Brewery Range of Swedish Craft Beers to its Portfolio
 
Boutique Bar Brands are very proud to announce it has teamed up with importers Proof Drinks to introduce the Gotlands Brewery range to the UK.
The brewery is situated on Gotlands Island, a small island in the Baltic Sea known for it’s impressive cultural heritage, and was founded by Johan Spendrup, a 4th generation brewmaster.
 
In 1994 Johan went to Gotlands Island to found the brewery and create a brew using grain sown by his father, Jens Spendrups. By the following year the brewery was up and running and Sweden had its first craft brewery.
 
Phil Harding of BBB comments; “Boutique Bar Brands are very proud to add Sweden’s premium craft brewer to their portfolio.  Gotlands havegot a great history and provenance and their range of beers is fantastic.  We have already had a lot of positive interest from the trade and we are sure that we can quickly establish Gotlands as the UK’s number one Swedish brewery.  We believe that the beers will have a wide appeal to both the large ex pat community and the discerning British beer drinker.” 
 
The multi award winning range includes:
 
Sleepy Bulldog Pale Ale, 33 cl, 4.8 % vol: Sleepy Bulldog Pale Ale has a rich and fruity hop aroma with distinct hints of lychee and black current. Its palate has distinctive bitterness with malt-roasted tones providing a long and fruity aftertaste.
