Art of Darkness 2017 is Little Pomona's journey in the barrel and beyond. Always a blend of spontaneously fermented Foxwhelp and Ellis Bitter, it begins life in tank before being racked into barrels. We set out to make just one cider but so intrigued were we with the differences and quality of three barrels in particular that we decided to bottle each separately.
PART 2 is 75% Ellis Bitter and 25% Foxwhelp. Free from the tyranny of Foxwhelp, Ellis Bitter sets about establishing a hedonistic empire of plenty! Doing what it does best, Ellis absorbs the full influence of the barrel it spent 22 months in.
Its rich depth of red fruits, black leaf tea, dried flowers, leather and beguiling violet perfume in the mouth shows off the variety and its potential to the max.
