Straight out of the barrel, this is cider as cider naturally wants to be. A careful blend of hand- picked bittersweet, sharp and sweet apples are pressed and the pure juice is slowly fermented over several months until all the sugar has turned to alcohol and the cider is then matured for several more months to develop flavour. The result is a pure, bone dry, gently tannic yet smooth and refreshing traditional cider.
