In a nutshell: Yorkshire brewed limited edition seasonal ale.
The lowdown: A limited edition seasonal ale from Sam Smith's of Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. Being fermented in Sam Smith's unique 'stone squares' helps to give this winter seasonal a full body and luxurious malt character.
One of the few remaining old independent regional brewers, Samuel Smith's was established in 1758 and makes claim to be the oldest in Yorkshire. The brewery is still based in Tadcaster which is the region's brewing capital. They brew a wide range of tradtional English beers some of which are one of the last breweries to retain coopers for their wooden casks and stabling for dray horses that still undertake local deliveries.
