Unique Aspect

Rooting Around - Autumn, seeks to harness the flavour of Autumn with the use of a fig tree. Toasty, roasted and nutty malt flavours perfectly capture the darker nights and crisp chill in the air. Fig fruits work perfectly with this malty backbone however toasted fig leaves are the star ingredient here. They impart a lightly toasted coconut character which marries with the fig fruits and contrasts the tannic bite of the fig wood.

Food Pairings

Sweetness is your friend with Rooting Around - Autumn. Pork belly on root veg would be a no brainer, complimentary sweetness and earthiness from the malts and root veg while fig and coconut notes contrast the rich pork. Matching sweetness with sweetness a sticky toffee pudding would be heightened to sheer decadence while accentuating the coconut aromas of the fig leaves.
