Core Beers - Mompesson’s Gold

Mompesson's Gold

A returning Oakham cask aged favourite last brewed in 2018.

Earthy floral aromas and sweet fruit flavours lead to a long, hoppy, bittersweet finish.

Named after Giles Mompesson, the corrupt 17th Century MP and Commissioner of Inns who prosecuted over 3,320 inns and taverns on the basis of spurious regulations and for personal enrichment.

Found guilty of extortion, he was ordered to pay a £10,000 fine, lost his knighthood and was sentenced to riding  down the Strand facing backwards on his horse!

Oakham’s Cask Aged beers command a lot of the brewing team’s care and attention and these award-winning beers prove that it’s time well spent!

The process starts with great beer being brewed in the usual Oakham way, but at the end of the initial fermentation, yeast cells are removed from the beer.

This is because yeast gets tired and a bit bad tempered after working hard in the fermentation process and this can cause undesirable aromas and flavours.

So fresh yeast is introduced to complete the fermentation – a process known as “Krausening” and the method which ensures that Oakham’s Cask Aged beers taste so smooth and drinkable.

The beer is then racked in casks and cellared like a fine wine to allow development of the remarkable flavours and conditioning that characterize the Oakham Cask Aged range.

All of the Oakham Cask Aged beers are aged for at least 6 weeks – usually for much longer!
