The first delivery of Yorkshire beer has reached its destination in the Falkland Islands.
A consignment of over 100 cases of assorted Wold Top Brewery beers took six weeks to make the 8,000 mile voyage from the Wold Newton brewery to Port Stanley in the Falklands.
The order is being distributed via Yorkshire based food service specialist Turner Price and is eagerly awaited by the island’s growing and diverse community that includes people from over 60 nations.
Kate Balchin, the brewery’s Export Manager, said: “Although our export business is growing very well, it’s always good to open up a new market and we hope that the beer proves worth the wait for the Falklanders.”
Farm based Wold Top Brewery is part of the Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) scheme for environmental initiatives and is also working closely with the RSPB to promote its birdlife. It brews traditional real ale from home and Wolds grown malting barley, the finest hops and chalk-filtered water from the farm’s own borehole. Closer to home, its range of award winning ales is also available through the website, independent, family owned retailers, farm shops, delis, hotels, pubs and off licences throughout Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
