Beer is the world's third most popular drink after water and tea. It is brewed the world over but the basic ingredients are always the same. Water, a starch source-usually barley- brewer's yeast and a flavouring ingredient such as hops. Some beers add maize, rice or even sugar to their starch source but the finest use malted barley alone.
In a brewery, water, when it enters the premises, is called 'liquor'.
All the water we use as liquor is exclusively drawn from our own artesian well.
Faversham sits on a layer of chalk and it's this chalk that purifies and filters our spring water. Because our brewing process is deemed to be particularly efficient by the Environmental Authority we are now permitted to draw 66 million gallons of water per year from our aquifer.
Once the water is drawn it is 'matched' to ensure its mineral content is identical to the water each beer has originally been brewed with.
