This charcoal is made from timber sourced from Natural England SSSI protected woodlands in Essex and Hertfordshire.

In the 19th Century, with the massive increase in the population of London, charcoal was in demand for domestic heating and cooking and for the steam engines used in every facet of industry and increase in transportation

Hornbeam is a rare charcoal that delivers a long consistent burn perfect for cooking on all home barbecues and charcoal grills.

Mild, smokey flavours that balance most ingredients.

Origins & Production

Stag Charcoal works in partnership with Abington Sawmill & local woodland owners to source timber suitable for conversion into British charcoal and other charcoal derived products that can be found in this store, under the "Stag Charcoal" brand. The name "Stag" was chosen because traditionally the stag has been the “King” of the forest and our guiding values and ethos is that British Charcoal is the best.
