Kent-based brewer Shepherd Neame has reported a 25% leap in operating profit before exceptional items to £11.9 million.

Pre-tax profit grew at a similar level in the year to June 26, to stand at £8.7 million on turnover of £115.4 million.

Total beer volume sales through the company were up 4.8% and sales of its own beer brands were ahead by 3.8%.

The brewer reported a strong performance from Spitfire, Bishop’s Finger and Asahi.
