Meaning ‘Mountain of light’ in Persian, Kohinoor was originally brewed as one of 2012 Jubilee beers all inspired by ingredients from around the Commonwealth. Pronounced KO-HI-NOOR, the exotic IPA is made with Indian spices and Jasmine petals from the East Indies.
Based on a classic IPA recipe which uses Imperial Malt along with Chinook, Simcoe and Pacific Jade hops. However the additional special ingredients of Jaggery (raw cane sugar from India bought from Southall market), Jasmine Petals, Cardamom and Coriander produce a distinctive twist to this “Indies Pale Ale”.
The resultant beer is a pale, smooth, full IPA with a distinct bitterness and with a hop aroma that is enhanced by a touch of the exotic!
Our beer is named after the original “Kohinoor”, the large diamond at the centre piece of the Coronation Crown used in 1953 and whose history is traced for over 1000 years though we think this beer is a diamond of equal brilliance!
Available in cask (4.5% ABV) from April to June
