The aptly named, Double Drop, is brewed using just one type of English barley: Maris Otter - which was harvested from Fuggle Farm in Norfolk. Double dropping brings out the full flavour of the Maris Otter malt, often described as the king of brewing barley. The double dropping technique allows only the most vigorous yeast to survive and results in a cleaner fermentation process and a fresher, brighter beer. Double dropping involves dropping the beer during fermentation from one vessel to another, normally after 24 hours.
