Non Vintage Ciders

Classic Draught Apple

FRUIT 

A blend of Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Red Delicious and Gala apples are juiced to give a fruity but crisp acid Juice. 


ALCOHOL 

5.0% 


ABOUT THE CIDER 

The clarified juice is fermented to just above dryness to leave a juicy apple character on the finished product. 


APPEARANCE 

Straw coloured. 


AROMA 

First impressions of this are clean and fruity but slightly subdued. The aroma has hints of baked apple which blend with the crispy apple skin notes. 


AS YOU TASTE IT 

The palate has a mouth coating depth of flavour. There is a blend of fruit and acid to make this a satisfying drink and a clean acid punch at the end to make you want another sip. The sugar level is relatively low so it won’t tire the palate too quickly. Not too sweet not too dry, true to the Draught Cider style. 


SESSION SUGGESTIONS 

One for traditional Cider drinkers. Great by itself, great before a meal with some nibbles or at the end with some cheese and biscuits.





Raspberry and Cranberry


FRUIT 

A blend of Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Red Delicious and Gala apples are juiced to give a fruity but crisp acid Juice 


ALCOHOL 

5.0% 


ABOUT THE CIDER 

The clarified juice is fermented to dryness and then Raspberry and Cranberry juice blended at the end to give sweetness and retain the rich aromas and flavours. 


APPEARANCE 

Berry pink coloured 


AROMA 

The raspberry hits you straight up front with the cranberry and apple contributing more to the palate. 


AS YOU TASTE IT 

The addition of the raspberry juice makes this super fruity and moderately sweet. The acid tartness from the cranberries in particular make this sweet taste less apparent and keep it refreshing. The Cider base gives some structure and mouthfeel so that this is more than just a juicy hit. 


SESSION SUGGESTIONS 

A fruity take on Cider which can be enjoyed anytime. Try it with a dessert – pavlova or brulee, but would probably go just as well with some Duck pancakes or a spicy Asian meal.




Pear Perry


FRUIT 

Pakham, Williams and Bosc’s Pears are crushed for the juice. The solids and pulp are retained to give cloudy juice. 


ALCOHOL 

4.5% 


ABOUT THE CIDER 

Perry is the traditional name for Pear Ciders. Cloudy pear juice is fermented to just above dryness. The pulp lends some mouthfeel and character during the ferment. The cider is then clarified prior to bottling. 


APPEARANCE 

Medium blonde with a tinge of green 


AROMA 

Crispy pears come straight to mind on the aroma. As it warms and evolves there is a slight funkiness. This has hints of cheddar cheese and dried fruit on a cheese platter. 


AS YOU TASTE IT 

Complex sugars in the pears give a complexity and depth of flavour. There is a generosity that contradicts the relatively low sugar level. It fills the mouth and has structure and balance between the fruit acid and natural sugars. The finish is refreshing and the flavours full. Fruity but not too sweet, crisp but not harsh. 


SESSION SUGGESTIONS 

See above in aroma! A perfect match for cheese and biscuits. As a snack, before, after or as a meal. Good BBQ fare with a few chips & dips.


Dark Grape


FRUIT 

A blend of Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Red Delicious and Gala apples are juiced to give a fruity but crisp acid Juice 


ALCOHOL 

5.0% 


ABOUT THE CIDER 

Blending wine & cider – is this the Dark Side? The clarified apple juice is fermented to dryness and then Red Grape juice is blended at the end to give the luscious sweet, fruity aromas and flavours.


APPEARANCE 

Cherry Red coloured 


AROMA 

A real mix of fruits come out in the aroma – cherries, berries and grapes. There is even a hint of blackberry cheesecake. 


AS YOU TASTE IT 

Grape juice as an addition is a little different than expectations. It is fruity and fresh – Moscider? The fruit is sweet and juicy and fills the mid palate. The sweetness from the grape juice lingers and gives it the luscious finish. 


SESSION SUGGESTIONS 

Can we suggest breakfast? Maybe Brunch is more appropriate!Pancakes, Waffles, Granola and Fruit, Eggs Benedict, try as you like. Would probably go just as well with some canapés or tapa’s.




Sweet Apple


FRUIT

A blend of mostly Granny Smith & Pink Lady apples are juiced to give a fruity but crisp acid Juice


ALCOHOL 

5.0% 


ABOUT THE CIDER 

The clarified juice is fermented to just above dryness to leave a juicy apple character on the finished product. A mix of spices are infused into the cider to impart a rich lush mouthfeel 


APPEARANCE 

Straw coloured 


AROMA 

The aroma has hints of cinnamon and vanilla which allude to this sweeter style. The smell of Apple Strudel or pie plucked from the oven linger on the nose like it was your Grandma’s kitchen. 


AS YOU TASTE IT 

The palate is rich and sweet but the addition of the allspice and nutmeg give complexity. After the first sip the spices linger to offset the sweetness slightly. The final impression is well balanced and a nice combination of sugar and spice and all things nice.


SESSION SUGGESTIONS 

Is this the winter cider? One to try with dessert or cheese and biscuits. Autumn or Spring BBQ’s, fire pits in Winter – don’t let us tell you when!

Passionfruit Perry


FRUIT 

Pakham, Williams and Bosc’s Pears are crushed for the juice. The solids and pulp are retained to give cloudy juice. 


ALCOHOL 

4.5% 


ABOUT THE CIDER 

Perry is the traditional name for Pear Ciders. Cloudy pear juice is fermented to just above dryness. The cider is then clarified and infused with Passionfruit pulp, prior to a further clarification and then bottling. 


APPEARANCE 

Light straw with a tinge of orange in the background 


AROMA 

The Passionfruit is subtle but luscious. The aroma is fruity but not cloying. 


AS YOU TASTE IT 

The sweetness and acidity of the passionfruit blends with the complexity of the pears to give a luscious but refreshing drop. The pear base still comes through and gives some mouthfeel and structure so that the mid palate is full but not too sweet. The natural acidity of the passionfruit adds the final touch by giving a zesty zing on the finish. 


SESSION SUGGESTIONS 

Icy cold on a warm afternoon. With a fruit platter or a plate of nibbles. Would go well with a chocolate mousse or crème caramel.
