Fuller’s Traitors’ Gate – released for the first time
London Brewer Fuller’s unveils a brand new ruby red ale
Fuller’s today (November 21) further enhanced its reputation for creating outstanding and interesting ales by revealing details of a brand new limited edition - Traitors’ Gate.
The new brew is a rich, ruby red colour and features the famous London landmark Traitors’ Gate and a Tower of London Raven on the striking red pump clip.
A very small number of barrels of this limited edition brew are being made available in 54 hand-picked pubs across the Fuller’s estate and some in the free trade. Traitors’ Gate will be available on the bar in those pubs from this week, but when it’s gone, it’s gone.
The 4.5% ABV draught cask conditioned ale is made using a unique blend of Liberty hops from the USA and Galaxy hops from Australia. Traitors’ Gate is full bodied with a biscuity malty character, a refreshing citrus nose and subtle palate-cleansing zesty finish.
Fuller’s Head Brewer, John Keeling, said; “The brewing team at Fuller’s have been successful in producing new exciting ales such as Black Cab and Bengal Lancer that gives our customers extra choice. Traitors’ Gate is the very latest, with others being crafted for later release.
“Traitors’ Gate was developed to complement our core range of ales and to extend our seasonal ale portfolio. We are very pleased indeed with the end result.
“Our new ruby red ale is full bodied with a tropical fruitiness combined with a sharpness from the rye. It’s a beer that leaves the palate with a zesty freshness.”
Fuller’s Head of Marketing, Wade Crouch, said; “The identity of Traitors’ Gate reflects the fact that London is the most famous Capital City in the world. The branding features three famous London icons Traitors’ Gate, a raven from the Tower and our very own Griffin. The pump clip looks superb adding stand out, a point of difference and intrigue on the bar.”
