Samuel Smith Ale, Organic, Apricot
Handcrafted fruit ale with apricot juice and natural flavor. USDA organic. Soil Association organic. Handcrafted at Melbourn Bros tiny brewery set in a time warp in Stamford using the old manually operated brewing equipment. Finest organically grown barley and wheat are used to create a complex ale which, having undergone primary and secondary fermentation with different yeasts and extended maturation, is taken to Samuel Smith's small, independent British brewery at Tadcaster. There it is blended with pure organic apricot fruit juice and a previously cellared organic brew - creating an unparalleled fruit ale. The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice. The steam engine provides power to drive the malt mill and mash tun rakes. It was built in 1910 by Marshalls of Gainsborough. merchantduvin.com. Certified organic by Soil Assn. Certification Ltd.
