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

Bare root hop plants are available from late November until early April. Dates will vary depending on the weather and ground conditions however, we hope to start lifting from the field by November 1st. The best time to transplant hop plants lies during this period whilst the plant is dormant. Plants in 2 Litre pots are available from May until September but are available for UK mainland delivery only.
