It was at St Austell’s Blue Anchor that the King’s messenger carrying news of the battle first stopped for refreshment on his long journey from Cornwall to London. This premium bottle-conditioned ale has been uniquely brewed using our own Cornish Gold malt. Locally grown barley is traditionally malted using a special kilning process which develops a deeper intensity of colour and flavour than ordinary barley malt. Blended with both Styrian Golding and Cascade hops, the result is a deep bronze ale with a delicious rich biscuit flavour and a wonderful spicy aroma. Winner of bronze medal in the Brewing Industry International Awards.
Brewed in Cornwall to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Nelson’s victory at Trafalgar in 1805.
