– Fuggle is an Aroma Variety of Hop, with a 3.5%-5.5% Alpha Acid Content that at her peak over 100 years ago allowed for Fuggle to be used as a Dual Purpose Variety. Fuggle Hops were a Staple for English Brewing during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, and in the Kent region in 1861, Richard Fuggle selected this variety as a seedling or seed and later introduced it into commerce in 1875 under his own name. Despite having one of the lowest Yields among UK Hop Varieties, Fuggle is sought after for her excellent Brewing Properties in classic English Styles, offering Herbaceous, Spicy, Wood, Oak and Grass-like qualities.
