Women and Beer in Scotland with Ardtornish Estate and the Whitehouse Restaurant

Posted: 23rd October 2012 at 10:11 am


Did you know that  Sixteenth-century Aberdeen boasted 150 brewers,– all women  known as “broustaris” or alewives.  Three of Scotland’s leading brewsters are coming to Ardtonish to talk about their beer:


Tuggy Delap set up Loch Fyne Beers and shot straight to glory with a gold brewing award within nine months of starting.

Petra Wetzel created WEST.   The only brewery  in the UK to abide strictly by the ancient German brewing quality standard, the Reinheitsgebot.

Catherine Maxwell Stuart’s brewery is a revived tradition, long part of the domestic economy of her world-famous Traquair House in the Scottish Borders.

There will also be beer tastings and beer-inspired cuisine by the team behind the increasingly celebrated Whitehouse Restaurant, Lochaline.

Cost £120 for the weekend including all food and drink!  More details can be found at
