We are excited to release the second offering of “Single Varietal” Traditional Ciders. We have been patiently waiting for our cider apple trees to mature in order to pick a suitable crop for these releases.
The Kingston Black is a bitter-sharp apple and is considered by many to be the ultimate cider apple variety with an excellent balance of acid and tannin bitterness and enough fermentable sugars for fermentation. It was first cultivated in the parish of Kingston St Marys in Somerset, UK and was a red-black apple –hence the name. It’s popularity in traditional cidermaking regions of the UK means it is more widely grown than any other cider apple in England.
