- Find & Foster - Seven 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. Their recent (very) limited release ‘Seven’ is a revelation. Made following the same process as champagne, it undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle, creating sediment which settles in the neck. The bottle is then disgorged and the naturally sparkling cider is complete. If you have the self-restraint, this cider will age beautifully for years. However, if you’re anything like us, your inquisitiveness will overcome and you will seek out any excuse to pop the cork.
- Wilding Cider - Reasons to be Cheerful 750ml
Because we all need reasons to be cheerful right now, and this cider certainly gives us one! 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. Experimenting with different aging methods, such as Portuguese red wine barrels and bottle conditioning, their cider is truly unique and truly special. Made with fruit pressed on the last day of their season in December 2018, Reasons to be Cheerful is a rich celebration of fruit, with gorgeous complexity and solid tannins.
