Description Growth & Analytical Data Planting & Growing Instructions
 
WGV

Bred in 1911 in Kent and first promoted in the 1930's both for its flavour and disease resistance qualities. Provides a distinctive sweet fruit flavour in beers, similar to, but more pronounced and robust than Goldings. It gives a citric,lightly fragrant aroma and flavour best suited to pale ales, light bitters and wheat beers. Used as a single varietal in McMullenn's AK original.

Availability

Plants in 2 litre pots are available from late May until September, for UK mainland delivery only due to transport implications. Bare root hops plants are available for wider distribution from November.
