Silly Scotch

Silly Scotch

Silly Scotch is the fruit of a unique tradition. Over the years, this beer grew to become the benchmark in its style. Its beautiful copper-red colour lurks beneath a beige head. Its complex aromas exude brioche with sultanas, candied fruits and fresh raspberry. The generous, full-bodied liqueur first surprises with impressions of honey and caramel and finishes with hints of plums and roasted malt. The finish is refreshing.
