Towpath Porter

Our Towpath Porter has traditional toasted notes with subtle sweetness and hints of caramel and cocoa. It finishes with a soft and smooth mouth-feel. Close your eyes, take in the toasty nose and remember the plight of all the young men that made travel on the canal system possible.

ABOUT THE NAME

The preferred source of power for boats travelling the canal was usually a horse or mule. The beast of burden would be harnessed to the canal boat and dragged through the canal on a dirt path just off the side of the canal known as the “towpath”. Tending the mules was often the job of young boys. It was dirty work and trips down the canal could last weeks or more!
