The pedigree of the Mathon hop is a bit of a mystery. Early writings about hops indicate that both Mathon and Goldings were growing side by side as early as the late 1700’s. Writings today appear to suggest that it may have hailed specifically from Farnham Whitebine or Canterbury Whitebine in much the same way the Goldings varieties did. One this is for sure, it solidly features the pleasant aroma for which most Goldings hops are well known.
