Canterbury Golding has been discovered to be identical to East Kent Golding. The two names are used interchangeably, but favoring East Kent. It is thought that the mixup occurred because Canterbury is in East Kent, and the hop was first brought to market there in 1790. A few people, however, charge to this day that they are two distinct varieties. Canterbury/East Kent Golding is considered to be the quintessential English hop, long held as the island's favorite for ales and pale ales.
