Alexanders (Smyrnium olusatrum) – is native to the Mediterranean but can obviously thrive much further north. It was brought to the UK by the illustrious Romans who called it the “pot herb of Alexandria”. Every part of the plant is edible and it tastes similar to angelica and parsley (another common name for it, is Horse Parsley).

Our Alexanders were foraged from the cliffs at Cromer, the fresh seasons growth of the plant that can grow as high as 1.8m were used as an additional to the wort at “flame out” stage.

The plant gives a clean slightly peppery taste to the beautiful light saison ale.
