Who doesn’t want their president to tell the truth?
The 2016 presidential battle between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has become one of the most thrilling races in decades, and one beer brand is taking full advantage.
Award-winning beer brand Innis & Gunn have launched Smoke & Mirrors, the first truth-telling beer, made from ingredients designed to foster truthfulness.
They even sent bottles of the new brew directly to Trump and Clinton, since trustworthiness is one of the most important qualities necessary in any world leader.
But Clinton has faced her fair share of scandals, from the Clinton Foundation's questionable financial record to her ongoing private email server leaks. So Smoke & Mirrors could be an ideal choice for the former first lady.
Innis & Gunn has its roots in Scotland, a nation that has recently faced its own political uncertainty and mistruths, so they can relate to the plight of the American people during 2016 presidential campaign. Trump's own mother was born in Scotland and the Republican nominee has even opened his own golf course in the country, making it a perfect beer for him, too.
How does it work? Smoke & Mirrors is made from three natural ingredients - Licorice root, Mullein, and Vine essence, all of which are said to aid the truth-telling process.
Dougal Gunn Sharp, the founder and master brewer at Innis & Gunn is a strong proponent of honest political campaigning and 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.”
Sharp continued, “At Innis & Gunn, we’re committed to pushing forward the boundaries of beer innovation; experimenting with new brewing methods and flavor profiles. 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.”
