Guinness & Co., a part of Diageo plc, introduced the first offering in the new Guinness Signature Series: Guinness The 1759. The limited-edition, ultra-premium amber ale is brewed with both traditional beer malt and the same peated whisky malt used in fine Scotch and Irish whiskies. Inspired by a 200-year-old recipe and brewed with the same Guinness yeast strain that has been used for more than 125 years, Guinness The 1759 brings new style and flavor to the Guinness trademark, the company says. Only 90,000 bottles of the beer will be produced. A 25.4-ounce bottle contains 9 percent alcohol by volume and has a suggested retail price of $34.99.
