Made by brewing a blend of gingers; a hot ginger from Nigeria and the very rare fresh green ginger from Ecuador, Fever Tree have created a ginger beer which has a noticeably more prominent ginger character and is less sweet than its competitors. Because they have packed it full of natural ginger you should instantly be able to smell the ginger aromas. The ginger flavour will predominate as you taste it, and like all good ginger beers, the ginger will linger at the back of your palate. In the words of Olly Smith, one of the UK's top drinks writers. 'Finally a drink that gets right up my nose - in a good way! It's all I've ever wanted! It doesn't mumble, it sings! The taste has a perfect spicy kick with a long aftertaste - very tingly and a palate revitaliser - not too sweet and all about the flame root.'
Adnams brewery has stood in the heart of Southwold for over six hundred years and "Southwold Jack" appears on our oldest beer labels. He continues to guard over our longest serving beer brewed here in Southwold on the Suffolk coast - The Bitter. The Bitter goes well with roast meats and fish cooked in batter as the clean bitterness cuts through the slightly fatty notes and hence keeps the palate refreshed. The Bitter also makes a good aperitif.
Sitting on East Green in the coastal town of Southwold Suffolk, stands the UK's newest, and we believe, most energy efficient brewery. Years of brewing expertise, combined with state-of-the-art equipment, a lightweight bottle and ingredients locally sourced from the East of England means we can create this special light golden beer. Enjoy subtle citrus and grassy hop aromas for a dry and refreshing beer with a well balanced bitterness. For every bottle of Carbon Neutral East Green beer sold, 10p will go to the 10:10 Trust to help cut carbon 10% at a time
'Viru' (pronounced 'veer-roo') is a premium 5% lager brewed in Estonia. Unique in its quality, heritage and packaging, Viru is rapidly becoming the Baltic states' most famous export. 'Viru' is a traditional name for an area of land on the Baltic coast once inhabited by a Finnic tribe known as Vironians. Originally named 'Virumaa', the land now forms part of northern Estonia, a region known for the precious stone Amber. The finest regional ingredients are combined by the master brewer using an authentic export recipe to produce a superb pilsner style beer that stands proud amongst many of its more famous European brothers. Perfectly balanced spring water is drawn from one of Europe's deepest wells. Only the best quality barley is selected from the pure grain fields of Lithuania and famous Saaz hops from the Czech Republic complete the short but classic list of local produce used to make Viru. Brewed in the university town of Tartu, Viru is packaged in a sleek octahedral bottle said to be based on the famous churches and towers of old Tallinn, capital of Estonia. Though the design is over 100 years old, the bottle has a very contemporary feel and gives the brand a major point of difference. It sits comfortably in the bars and restaurants of London and Milan. Clean, refreshing with a light hoppy flavour and gentle vanilla tones, Viru is clearly recognisable as a quality beer in a stylish bottle and is quickly growing its status as an international brand.
