Kent Cascade Wins British Hop Awards

News: January 2017

Veteran Kent hop farmer Tony Redsell has picked up the top prize at this year’s British Hop Awards, run by the Institute of Brewing & Distilling.

The awards presentation, hosted by Wimbledon Brewery, saw Redsell’s English Cascade judged overall champion. The hop won praise for its aroma of ‘citrus peel, oranges and tangerine’. The same farm also took an award for its Fuggle.

Twenty-eight varieties of hop are now grown in the UK.
