Guinness The 1759 is a Limited Edition, Ultra-Premium Beer

Acclaimed beer manufacturer Guinness is expanding its lineup with what it calls an ultra-premium beer brewed with both beer and whisky malt, which is then meant to be served in stemless champagne flutes.

Called Guinness The 1759 (the year Arthur Guinness started brewing the legendary ale), it is the first of the Guinness Signature Series, which will comprise a range of limited edition, high-end beers. The release was timed to coincide with the holiday season, when people are more inclined to not only celebrate, but also to dig deeper in their pockets in order to meet this beer’s relatively steep asking price.

The brew is made using traditional beer malt, as well as the traditional peated malt whisky used in Scotch and Irish whiskies. This results in an amber ale with a butterscotch aroma with soft hop notes, subtle caramel flavors, and a distinct fruity sweetness.

Guinness The 1759 comes in a 25 oz bottle, each priced at around $35 and will be released as a 90,000-unit limited edition. Unlike regular beers, it is recommended you serve this one in stemless champagne flutes to get the most out its unique flavor.
