Rutland Panther

A well balanced dark mild, whose chocolate and fruity flavours complement its roasted long smooth finish. Category winner at the G.B.B.F. and overall runner up in 2005.

A real celebration of the mysterious Black Panthers rumoured to roam the wilds of Rutland and often spotted.

For years, the smallest county in England has been rumoured to host at least one big cat, often assumed to be a black panther or leopard.

Paw prints have been found in golf course bunkers, suspect livestock killings reported in the south of the county, sightings near Belton-in-Rutland and even on Aylestone Meadows in Leicester but the evidence has never been convincingly corroborated.

There seems to be a bit of a hot-spot for the animal around Greetham Valley Golf Course however, with a reported sighting in 2010.

It has often been suggested that there is more than one cat in the Leicestershire and Rutland area and in 2013, two big cats were spotted in Leicestershire in the space of a day.

The Leicestershire and Rutland Panther Watch keeps tabs on any sightings and the organisation’s head believes there is a breeding big cat population in the East Midlands
