Somerset Cider Brandy Shipwreck
Single cask 10 year old cider brandy. Many will recall seeing barrels floating ashore at Branscombe on their televisions. We obtained, with permission of the Receiver of Wrecks, some superb barrels which were on their way to South Africa for filling with their best wines. They arrived on the beach in containers protected from sea water by Bibles in Zulu and they have added a sophisticated oak finish to the brandy. Allier oak is subtle and we are very pleased with the effect.
