This Pale Ale has a base of Pilsner malt and Oats which lends a soft edge to the palate, and then we hit it with big whacks of Citra and Mosaic in both the brewhouse and dryhop. BAM! The result: bright and mega-fruity - think bananas, mangoes, papayas and peaches - SO LUSH!

A fruit-forward, easy drinking blend of Yarlington Mill, Harry Masters Jersey, Tremletts Bitter and Bisquet. These four rich and full bodied bittersweet apples blend together seamlessly with the benefit of oak cask fermentation and multiple years of maturing. Our intention with ciders like this is to create a flavour that is silky, juicy and smooth across the palate, but still to maintain that complexity and delightful different sensations of the overlapping tannins from the four different varieties.

Thorn is a vintage perry pear that has been the highlight of our range for the last three years. This perry is intense, crisp, juicy, with medium green kiwi-like acidity and some light astringency. At 5.0% ABV it’s very sessionable for cider and perry, and boasts its unique and recognisable flavour. Something that appeals to drinkers looking for a punchy, flavoursome drink – both for cider/perry lovers, but also those who might otherwise drink sour beer, natural wine.
