Bishops Finger Kentish Strong Ale takes its name from the finger-shaped signposts which pointed pilgrims on their way to the tomb of Thomas Becket in Canterbury and was the first strong ale to be brewed by Shepherd Neame after malt rationing was eased in the late 1950s.
A rich, ruby-coloured classic ale, Bishops Finger is one of the UK’s oldest and best-loved bottled beers. It also holds EU Protected Geographical Indication, recognising its unique provenance.
" Fashioned on a firm, fruity foundation of Crystal malt, this rich, ruby-coloured Kent classic belies its burly appearance with a complexity of flavour. Mouth-filling fruit, prunes, plums and dried apricot spiked with palate-prickling pepper, cinnamon and a soft bitter blood-orange finish."
