"Thank you for your enquiry regarding Traquair House Ales. I am pleased to inform you that our beers contain no additives of any kind."

UPDATE: February 2010
Company email from Merchant du Vin
"http://www.merchantduvin.com/pages/1_about/organic_vegan_glutenfree_beer_notes.pdf document is currant and correct - other than those of Traquair, no animal products including honey are used in any of our beers."

This status comes via the importer Merchant du Vin, who says:
"All our beers... are vegan except Traquair House, which uses isinglass for fining. (Filtering is usually done at breweries with DE or synthetic media in a plate filter; fining is the process of clarifying beer by adding an ingredient - like egg whites, gelatin, or isinglass - that causes proteins and other haze to settle out in a conditioning vessel.)"
