Hop Varieties

Aroma hops are responsible for the unique flavourings of your beer. The Kentish terroir of our beautiful aroma hops makes them ideal for producing distinguished English hop flavours; our award-winning hops have achieved international acclaim.

Award Winning British Hops

The Hukins family passion for hop growing stretches across four generations. For over 100 years we have been growing British hop garlands on the unique ‘terroir’ in the Weald of Kent. 

Our maritime climate, Tunbridge Wells sandstone geology and sandy Wealden clay soil uniquely combine to give our aroma hops their very own set of unique brewing aroma characteristics.

Brewers & Merchants

Whatever your role in the brewing industry, from Hop Merchant to Home brewer, great or small we would love to work with you.

As part of our drive to curate and maintain the wonderful heritage of English hops, we experiment with a range of aroma hops. Our varieties include intense apricot from Ernest, oranges from Bullion and the classic English flavours of Fuggle, Golding’s and Challenger amongst others. 

We also are currently in the process of re-introducing a number of historic varieties no longer grown in the U.K including the Hukins Hop, lost in time in the British Hop Library for over 60 years as well as a range of experimental aromas. Interested and want to learn more, drop us a note today
