Hemp is a wonderful and versatile plant, and also related to the hop. Hugh decided it was a small hop to use the hemp seeds to produce a brilliant beer. Its roasty, toasty and nutty flavours come together in this smooth, creamy ale.
About the estate
Vintage Roots are delighted to be chosen suppliers to River Cottage. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and the team are as serious about the provenance of their drink as they are about food, and are hugely enthusiastic about Vintage Roots' commitment to organic, biodynamic and natural methods of wine-making. This reflects River Cottage’s own adventures in creating their branded range of organic wines, beers and ciders, which we have great pleasure in stocking. Hugh has been personally overseeing their development every step of the way.
Hugh said: “I have been buying wines from Vintage Roots for years and it’s been great to see them going from strength to strength. It makes perfect sense to build our drinks offering around their fantastic list, and we are delighted that our own River Cottage collaborations are now included in it, so anyone who wants to try them can order direct from Vintage Roots.”
