If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a pint north of the border, The Airlie Arms Bar and restaurant in Kirriemuir is the place to go.
The bar, which has only been open 18 months, has been recognised for pouring Scotland’s best pint at the 2016 Scottish Licensed Trade News Awards.
“We’re so pleased to have been recognised as pouring the best pint in Scotland, “ Dilys Robertson, who runs the Airlie Arms Bar and Hotel with her father Barry and sister Nicola Ewart, said. “When we opened the outlet, we never imagined we’d be taking home the title of Scotland’s best pint so soon. It’s been a fantastic journey for us building up to three bars, a restaurant and a function suite from what was an abandoned building 18 months ago.”
To toast the success, Tennent’s has given them a bespoke Tennent’s fount. The fount reads ‘Top Pint’ and sits proudly on the bar in Kirriemuir, reminding everyone who drinks there that the Airlie Arms’ has such a prestigious title.
Tennent’s new fount casings are interchangeable, meaning the brand can produce one-off founts like ‘Top Pint’ for special occasions. Six fount designs are currently available taking cues from Tennent’s iconic branding and advertising campaigns over the years. The new founts are rolling out across Scotland and will help the brand’s customers create a real talking point at the heart of their bar.
