Winner of a Gold Medal and Best Strong Cask-Conditioned Beer of the World at the Brewing Industry International Awards, Spitfire Ale is now Shepherd Neame’s biggest-selling cask-conditioned ale. It has Protected Geographical Indication, the same regional produce protection afforded to Champagne and Parma Ham.
Spitfire is an official partner of global men’s health charity Movember and the Royal Air Force.
