Bushy's teams up with remote Atlantic island

Latest beer uses berries from Tristan da Cunha

A local brewery has teamed up with residents of Tristan da Cunha to create a beer using one of the rarest ingredients on Earth.

Rubrum berries have been used in Bushy's latest tipple - 'Island Brew' - which is making its debut at the Great British Beer Festival in London.

It took two-and-a-half months for ten jars of the berries to reach the Isle of Man from the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean.

It's 4.5 per cent and is based on Bushy's Bramble beer.
