- Bollhayes 2014 750ml
Alex Hill uses traditional cider apple varieties from his own orchards and surrounding orchards in the Blackdown Hills. Once hand-picked, the apples are milled, pressed and fermented using wild yeasts and wine culture yeasts. Having pressed in October and November, the first fermentation lasts until early spring. The dry cider is then bottled for the second ‘champagne style’ fermentation. After a year in the bottle, the ciders are disgorged and ready for drinking, although they'll continue to develop in complexity for years in the bottle! We’re currently drinking 2014, however Alex dropped in a sneaky preview of 2017 and boy it’s good.
- Wilding Cider - Chisel Jersey, Dabinett, Porter's Perfection 750ml
Wilding Cider is made by Beccy & Sam Leach, a couple formerly famed for their iconic Bristol restaurant, Birch. From their farm in Chew Magna, Somerset, they make cider in the most natural way possible, fermenting in small batches and using traditional apple varieties local to the region. In this bottle, the iconic Chisel Jersey apple is paired with its half sister, the Dabinett and a splash of Porters Perfection before being aged in Portuguese red wine barrels, shipped over from a natural winemaker. The result is incredible depth and complexity with sophisticated tannic structure.
- Oliver's Fine Cider - Dabinett 750ml
Nicknamed the Godfather of the Fine Cider Movement, Tom Oliver applies a lifetime of experience with centuries of cidermaking tradition to craft some of the world’s greatest ciders and perrys on his farm in Herefordshire. After pioneering wild yeast fermentation, Tom has experimented with numerous barrel aging methods and collaborated with some of the world’s most iconic craft brewers and cidermakers. Dabinett is a single variety still, dry cider; fermented with wild yeast and aged in whiskey barrels, with spicy, musty & oakey flavours.
