The Spirit of Glenury

The Spirit of Glenury bitter is a a new drink that has been brewed to commemorate a distillery at the forthcoming Stonehaven Real Ale Festival at Stonehaven Town Hall from 4th to 6th November 2010.
Matured in Glenury Royal whisky casks, the ale is expected to be very popular.
Last year's inaugural festival was hailed a great success in the town.
Organiser Robert Lindsay said: "The Glenury distillery still has a special place in the hearts of many people in Stonehaven, and there's a few bottles of Glenury Royal whisky tucked away in cupboards around the town.
"All that is left of the distillery now, 25 years after it was closed, are the remains of the lower part of the chimney and a commemorative plaque.
"We thought it would be a nice idea to pay tribute to that part of Stonehaven's heritage at this year's real ale festival to help keep its memory alive."
This year is second festival and offers the opportunity to sample ale from dozens of breweries.
Last year's festival raised about £3,500 for a local Maritime Rescue Institute (MRI)  that helped during the serious flooding that hit the town on 1st Nov 2010.
