Somerset Cider Brandy 8 Year Old 'Shipwreck'


Somerset Cider Brandy is the South West's answer to Calvados, this is distilled from award-winning cider and then matured in oak barrels to produce a delicious apple 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.
