In the breweries own words.
Francis Younghusband lived in Westerham (1921-1937) and explored India with his friend Lord Curzon. Curzon wrote in his memoirs, ‘as I rode down the grassy slopes, I saw coming towards me in the distance the figure of a solitary horseman. It was Younghusband’s native servant. At that moment I would have given a Kingdom, not for Champagne or hock and soda, or hot coffee but for a glass of beer! He approached and salaamed. I uttered but one word, ‘beer’. Without a moment’s hesitation, he put his hand in the fold of his tunic and drew therefrom a bottle… Happy forethought! O Prince of Hosts! Most glorious moment!’.
