Crombie’s, the butcher on Edinburgh’s Broughton St, and Innis and Gunn, the Edinburgh brewer, are two favourites of the blog. Only last week I was throwing some of Crombie’s Innis and Gunn sausages on the barbecue, alongside some of their venison and wild boar sizzlers. For Father’s Day Crombie’s are running a promotion, which offers a free bottle of Innis and Gunn’s oak aged beer when you purchase four of their Innis and Gunn sausages on the 19th and 20th June.
The Innis & Gunn sausages exude the usual Crombie’s quality and have a high pork content of 70%. The addition of the beer gives the sausages a pleasing sweet caramel flavour. If you’ve never been introduced to Innis & Gunn beer, you’re missing out. Brewed in Edinburgh, it has deservedly won a string of awards - unsurprising given its unique toffee, vanilla and oak flavours. In a saturated market, Innis & Gunn offer a beer that is genuinely different.
The weather will determine the feasibility of a barbecue this weekend, but with or without good weather the Innis and Gunn sausages and beer are a great way to enjoy Sunday - a real treat for fathers everywhere. Don’t go overboard though - the beer is a whopping 6.6% abv!
