We love a theme for a mixed case so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity for a coronation themed case! Don’t worry, the ciders involved are only loosely connected to the theme (some very loosely!) and are all excellent ciders in their own right so hopefully they will go down equally well with pro-monarchy and pro-republican cider drinkers alike!
Celtic Marches ‘King’s Tipple’ (4.5%) Herefordshire
We couldn’t have a coronation case without including Celtic Marches’ new King’s Tipple. It’s light and easy-drinking and the perfect tipple for a sunny bank holiday.
Craft Cider Co ‘Core’ (5%) Gloucestershire
This is the CORE-onation cider! See what we did there? Okay it’s not specifically coronation themed but is the new cider from James McCrindle’s stable. It blends craft cider with a small amount of apple juice to bring the alcohol down to 5% and produce a very fruity finish.
Dunkertons ‘Court Royal’ (7.5%) Gloucestershire
This is a more regally themed cider and in this case refers to the apple that the cider is made from. Court Royal is an organic single-varietal from Dunkertons and is produced near to King Charles’s family home of Highgrove in Gloucestershire.
Harry’s ‘Dabinett’ (4.5%) Somerset
A bit cheeky but we couldn’t resist including a cider from (Prince) Harry! While there was plenty of talk about whether he would turn up or not, this cider is a solid inclusion having been a previous winner of Champion Cider at the British Cider Championships.
Lyne Down ‘Roaring Meg’ (5.2%) Herefordshire
And even if Meg’s not coming to the coronation she still made it into the coronation case! Roaring Meg is another great organic cider which is made from the orchard at Lyne Down, which was developed by the pioneering cidermaker Jean Nowell.
Ross on Wye ‘Headless Man’ (6%) Herefordshire
We’re sure that Charles III won’t go the same way as Charles I who famously lost his head – and we hope that he won’t chop off our heads for having a bit of fun with this case! Headless Man is a still cider, matured in a whisky barrel for extra complexity and flavour.
We hope that you enjoy this month’s selection. Watch out for our June case and if you haven’t done so already why not subscribe to get 15-20% off the individual case price.
