5.0% - Bottle Conditioned Beer
This is the first National Trust brand beer using malt and hops from National Trust sources. The hops are Target and Progress grown in organically at Scotney Castle.
The inspiration behind this beer, the Marquis Curzon of Kedleston, was a figure of enormous importance. While Viceroy of India he restored the Taj Mahal. On his return to England he restored Tattershall Castle in 1911 and Bodiam Castle in 1916, both of which he left to the Trust. In his memoirs he wrote about a journey on horseback in India where he dreamt of drinking a beer: "At that moment I would have given a kingdom, not for champagne or hock and soda, or hot coffee but for a glass of beer".
This is a true India Pale Ale brewed with lots of hops to produce a golden ale, hoppy and bitter. Suitable for vegans
