sm2Feeling frustrated by the US elections, independent Scottish brewer, Innis & Gunn, created a new range of beers laced with truth serum.

Innis & Gunn shipped bottles to both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, “to remind them of the importance of truthful campaigning”.

The new beer, Smoke & Mirrors, comes in three truth-telling flavours: Liquorice root, Mullein and Vine Essence.

Studies show that liquorice root, when consumed over a long period of time, helps to improve cognitive function and keep mental skills sharp. ‘No excuses for a hazy memory’ Innis & Gunn claim.

Mullein, which is used during the Smoke & Mirrors brewing process, is a natural relaxant that Innis & Gunn say encourages open and honest behaviour, wilst the Vine Essence helps those who consume it to inspire or lead people, without force.

Dougal Gunn Sharp, founder and master brewer at Innis & Gunn, said: “Scotland is a straight-talking nation and we’re looking forward to bringing a little part of our Scottish candidness over to the States, along with our most innovative brew to date, Smoke & Mirrors.”

“Our latest beer has been brewed especially for the American people and demonstrates how beer can be so much more than just a drink. Through Smoke & Mirrors, we have the power to open up a more real, more honest world.”

And if the ingredients are a bit too hard to swallow, the 7.4% ABV will probably have them speaking the truth in no time!
