The Try-anuary Case - January 2023

The Try-anuary Case - January 2023

Regular price £28.00 Sale price £23.00

We thought for our January case we’d try you on a few things that you might not have tried before! They’re all either new releases, different styles of cider, or something slightly out of the ordinary. We hope that you enjoy them! As ever we’re always keen to hear your feedback on our monthly guest cases so please do let us know what you think.

Cotswold Cider ‘Sideburns’ (5.4%)

Okay so we slightly cheated on the first one! The cider itself is not new but the labels are. Cotswold Cider was always a stalwart in the shop but since we moved the warehouse it’s been slightly harder to get hold of – so when we heard that they were rebranding it seemed like a great excuse to get them back on the shelves.

Garden Cider ‘Plum & Ginger’ (4%)

This one definitely is something new and is a bit of a departure for us! We always used to be dead against fruit ciders because a lot of commercial fruit ciders are very sugary/ sweet and are unrecognisable as cider. This is different – it is proper cider with a hint of plum and ginger which we think complements the apple very well.

Iford ‘Cloudgazer’ (5%)

This is one of Iford’s new range of craft ciders in cans. It is a cloudy cider (hence the name) and is meant to be turned upside down (hence the upside down label) in order to blend the sediment. Medium, sparkling and hazy session cider.

Perry’s ‘Puffin’ (6.5%)

We considered making this month’s selection a Dry-anuary case featuring all dry ciders! We thought that might be a bit much but this is a nod to that idea. This is a bottle-conditioned cider which means that it all of the natural sugars are fermented out and the fermentation is finished in the bottle to produce a natural sparkle.

Pulp ‘Apple’ (4.7%)

This couldn’t be more different from the last one. It is made in Herefordshire by Celtic Marches and is designed to be an accessible, easy-drinking cider. Its fresh new branding is designed to bring a new generation of cider-drinkers to proper craft cider.

Rawlins ‘Yarlington’ (6.7%)

This is another quite different style of cider. This is keeved, which means the fermentation is stopped before all of the sugar has turned into alcohol, leaving the natural sweetness of the apple. It has then been matured for up to two years to develop a deep, smoky, flavour.

We hope that you enjoy this month’s selection. Watch out for our February case and if you haven’t done so already why not subscribe to get 15-20% off the individual case price.

Made in the UK
Bristol Cider Shop is the original independent cider shop in the UK, founded in 2010, to provide a range of craft ciders to both cider-loving and cider-curious Bristolians. Whilst some of the early history may be a bit hazy, due to a whirlwind of product tastings, having fun and learning about good (and bad) cider, the business moved online in 2011, to spread the word even wider. From the original shop, via the foodie hub of Harbourside, in 2020 we decided to focus online, to make proper cider available across the land. Along the way we were honoured to be awarded UK Independent Cider Retailer of the Year 2015 and 2018.

How quickly will I get my order?

We will ship all orders in 2 working days maximum, often next day.  Deliveries are only made Monday to Friday.

Can I request delivery for a specific day?

Unfortunately we can't guarantee delivery for a specific date, but will try our best to delay it if needed for a future date. Just add a note to checkout.

What happens If I am not in?

Because we are shipping a Licensed product (alcohol), parcels wont normally be left safe. One of 3 things will happen:

1. It will be delivered to a neighbour and signed for - the tracking will show a photo

2. Delivery will be attempted 2 more times to you

3. It will be taken to your local Post Office for you to collect, and a card left through your letterbox.

How much does delivery cost?

Delivery is £5.95 for most of UK for your first case and then £2.95 for additional ones. Rather than hiding the delivery cost in the product price and offering free delivery (there’s no such thing as free delivery!) we’d rather be transparent about the cost of the product and the cost of the delivery.

Are there any places you cannot ship?

We currently only ship within the UK. Delivery to UK islands, Scottish Islands and Scottish Highlands postcodes may cost extra - delivery charges will be displayed at checkout. Unfortunately we cannot now deliver to Northern Ireland or the Channel Islands - apologies. Nor can we ship outside the UK.

I live in Bristol. Can I collect?

Unfortunately our licence doesn’t allow us to have customer collections on site so we can only take orders for delivery, sorry! Watch this space though for Summer 2024.

How can I track my order?

When we ship your order, you should receive an email from us containing a tracking code from our couriers . The quickest way to track your parcel is to follow the tracking link and this will show you the status of your delivery in real time. This will also allow you to change any delivery details if you need to. If you have any further problems, please email us at and we will do our best to help. Sorry we don't have a phone number.

Can I add a Gift Message?

Yes you can, simply add it in at checkout and we will include it on a card. No paperwork is included in the boxes, so no pricing information is given out.
