- Find & Foster - Allan 750ml
It’s in the name… Polly and Matt Hilton literally find and foster lost Devon Orchards, home to traditional, rare and rediscovered apple varieties. They help farmers to breathe life back into the crown jewels of our Devonshire countryside after losing 90% of our orchards since WWII. But it’s not just about conservation… Polly & Matt make some of the most refined ciders around using three traditional methods; Keeving, Pat Nat & Methode Traditionelle.
Snicket is a naturally sparkling, zesty and vibrant cider crafted using the ancestral method pet nat; which describes a natural sparkle that has been captured by bottling towards the end of primary fermentation. .
- Sandford Orchards - Katja 750ml
This amazing prosecco style cider is first of an exciting range of small batch ciders made exclusively for Darts Farm by our friend Barny Butterfield and his incredibly talented team at Sandford Orchards.
Katja is a single variety Prosecco style cider, made from the Katy dessert apple. It’s fresh & zingy with subtle sweetness & crisp natural acidity.
- Smith Hayne Special Reserve 750ml
A family run orchard in Cheriton Fitzpaine, Devon, Smith Hayne grow 11 different varieties of cider apples on their 12 acre orchards; which are hand-picked, pressed, bottled and pasteurised on-site in the barn.
Special Reserve is a blend of the best keeved cider produced in a single year, blended with a small amount of the best non-keeved cider. The keeved cider contributes apple sweetness and the non-keeved cider adds interest and ensures fizz. This Pétillant Naturel cider is a generous expression of classic West Country cider varieties with warmth and a tannic structure.
