Made from the second pressing of Dabinett apples with the addition of water, this was later refermented on the skins of freshly pressed Siegerrebe grapes, from our friends at stellar English winery, Astley Vineyard, in Worcestershire. Our latest reprisal of the old historic drink known as ciderkin, it’s an amazing way of upcycling pomace!
This edition has an intriguing nose, fruity, sweet and earthy all at the same time. In the mouth it’s very lightly sparkling, with flavours of Cape Gooseberry and peach, dried flowers, fuzzy apricot tannins and touch of kombucha-esque bite at the finish, making it super-moreish and refreshing. Definitely a glorious aperitif and palate cleanser.
Serve very well chilled. Pour carefully or better still, rouse to enjoy the lovely sediment!
