A proper Winter warmer this, a collection of Vintage and Reserve Cider ciders from the West Country.
All these Vintage and Reserve Ciders are barrel aged, for up to a year extra, to create a bigger, bolder, yet more balanced flavour, and typically a little stronger too at 6-7%+ ABV - go steady! We always suggest drinking them like a big bold red wine - perfect with steak, strong cheeses and rich casseroles and curries. Serve at room temperature too, not chilled.
Each case includes these ciders plus a couple of guest slots.
Rich's Vintage - Somerset, Medium 7.2%
Another absolute pleasure to drink Vintage cider, lighter, yet full bodied, with a strong applely flavour. One of George's best ciders yet.
King Brain Organic Vintage - Somerset, Medium Dry
A new supplier to us, Jon and Matt are at least the fifth generation of the King Brain family to farm at Little Weston, which nestles at the foot of Cadbury Castle, in beautiful, rural Somerset. Their Organic orchards are sensitively managed, and they certainly know how to get the best out of the apples. A fabulous lightly sparkling vintage.
Perry's Vintage - Somerset, Medium 6.7%
Soft and well-balanced barrel-aged Medium Vintage, a little lighter than the others in this case, but still packs a punch of flavour.
Sheppy's Vintage Reserve - Somerset, Medium Dry 7,4%
5th generation cider maker David Sheppy saves his best for their Vintage Reserve, aged in oak-barrels for extra depth of flavour and complexity.
