Anyone who knows the feeling of pushing boundaries also understands that a great pint tastes best when you’ve earned it. For Al Read and Nigel Tiddy, their love of the outdoors was always balanced by the beer they enjoyed at the end of each day. That’s exactly what led the two former RAF pilots into the world of hops and grains.
The name was inspired by the windswept beaches in Lossiemouth on the Moray coast where like-minded adventurers gather to pursue their outdoor passions, whatever the weather. Al and Nigel felt strongly that the brand should capture the spirit of rugged adventure found here on the edge of the Scottish Highlands
Brewing started in late 2012 and since then Windswept Brewing Co endeavour to produce contemporary and traditional ales, all hand crafted for exceptional taste. Since 2012, the brewery has been awarded a large number of awards from The Great Taste, SIBA, Scottish Beer Awards and The Quality Drink Awards.
Today Windswept has a loyal following of fans and is exporting to six different countries but the team still retains its family feel, bound together by a love of the great outdoors and brewing great beer.
