Each of our products are named after local and lawless smugglers, moonshiners and best loved villains from around the East Sussex area. Each with their own anecdote based on true stories.
One fine morning, Old Joll and the rest of his merry men were ferrying a fine selection of tea inland, when a group of tea-hating grinches crashed the party. Old Joll and the groombridge gang were having none of it, and so marched them at gun point for four hours. A man of his word, Joll returned their weapons like he had said, if they promised to keep the tea hush-hush. And the moral of this story is karma, my friends. Be good to Old Joll, and Old Joll will be good to you; be good to your beard and your beard will be good to you.
