Shepherd Neame 1698 Kentish Ale 500ml Bottle

"Thrice-hopped and bottle conditioned, 1698 is the connoisseurs choice, a beer to be savoured." - Shepherd Neame 

It was originally brewed to celebrate the tercentenary of Britain's oldest brewer and is a characteristically hoppy Kentish ale. It also has something that's pretty rare for beer -  it has Protected Geographical Indication. The same unique regional protection afforded to Champagne and Parma Ham.

The ale matures naturally in the bottle and can be enjoyed fresh or allowed to settle for a few months to mellow. The natural effervescence produced by bottle-conditioning – the interaction of yeast and brewing sugars – gives 1698 fine, Champagne-like bubbles that further enhance the fragrance, flavour and overall drinking experience.
