Warren Bader, chief executive and founder of Motherwell-based Plan Bee – owner of Beehive Brae – said: “Bottling the beer is the fruition of a long road.

“Socially and environmentally conscious shoppers are voting with their wallets and spending their money ethically. We believe this extends to how they want their beer.”

He added: “Beehive Brae is sustainable from the outset and enthusiasts can drink responsibly in the knowledge that their purchase uses purely British honey, and is playing an important part in protecting the environment.”
