SINGLE VARIETY CIDERS
Bred in Devon the early part of the 20th century, Brown’s has been at the fore front of the cider revival for recent years due to it’s trouble free nature. It produces a crisp, acidic cider with elderflower over-tones.
Loyal Drain (Red Jersey):
Possibly the most local of ciders, Red Jersey has its roots in the Shepton Mallet area. Lots of tannin and a strong smoky aftertaste, this is a quality bittersweet cider.
A butterscotch aftertaste is just one of the surprises of this cider from the popular Devon variety. It is sharp and dry without too much acidity, a popular choice wherever cider is made.
Port Wine of Glastonbury:
True to its name, this cider has in origins in orchards below Glastonbury Tor. Easy on the palate, this is a true session cider with light effervesence and lemony tones.
This is one of the most full bodied and rounded ciders, with a rich and fruity sweetness. A great partner to the classic ploughman’s lunch, a true drinkers cider.
As good a cider as its name is unusual, this is one you won’t forget. A wine like cider which is fruity on the nose with an intriguing walnut aftertaste. We leave the origins of its name to the drinker’s imagination.
Dunkerton’s Late Sweet:
Raised by Mr Dunkerton of Baltonsborough and a traditional variety for its area. This is a honeyed fruity smooth cider, perfect for that lazy hazy summers day picnic.
Discovered by William Dabinet of Somerset, this is one of the most popular varieties of cider apple, producing a consistently high quality and rounded cider, with a sweet fruity astringency. One for the connoisseur.
The Kingston Black arose in Somerset in the late 19th Century and produces here a cider that is classic in appearance, taste and strength. It is copper coloured, rounded, almost velvety in texture and is full of flavour.
Arising in Somerset in the 18th Century and once common throughout Somerset, Devon and Gloucestershire the Morgan’s Sweet is an early apple and produces a refreshing and light coloured cider. Ideal for sitting with in the garden.
Now common throughout Somerset, this apple originated in the 19th Century in East Lambrook. The cider is really unusual and surprisingly flavoured – its pinky hue the first sign that this is no ordinary cider. A very crisp taste and yet not acidic – more like wine, though it doesn’t need to be drunk that way.
Originally from Brittany and later introduced to Hereford, this apple produces a dry, drinkable cider with an interesting aftertaste.
