Heralding the arrival of Tennent’s Original Export back to these shores, a spectacular crate was washed up on the banks of the Clyde in Glasgow, forming a mysterious presence for passers-by before its sides were lowered to reveal the hidden bar inside.
As well as offering Scots a first taste of newly-launched Tennent’s Original Export – the premium export lager which is brewed in Glasgow using the finest ingredients, true to Tennent’s earliest brews – the quirky bar is a celebration of the illustrious and little-known export history of Scotland’s pre-eminent brewer.
The crate provides a fascinating peek into the Tennent’s archive, showcasing some recently-unearthed old photographs, postcards and maps. There are some early brewing medals and awards from around the globe, including the 1890 ‘First Degree of Merit’ from Trinidad & Tobago’ and the 1891 ‘Gold Medal’ from Jamaica. Bar table tops feature century-old newspaper clippings – including a copy of the Bavarian Brewing Journal from 1892 which describes a tasting of Tennent’s on a trip up the Nile!This entry was posted in News.
