LIMITED RELEASES

Sour Cherry Cider

A sessionable and refreshingly acidic made from tart Kentish and sweet Lapin cherries. Combined with sharp apple cider to give a final blend of rich cherry sweetness in the front palate over zingy apple acid drops lingering through the back palate.

Cidermaker’s Select “Young Sturmer” 2020

We have reflected on previous vintages to benchmark against in deciding the final blend and which ciders worked well with each other. There is an abundance of Kingstone Black (possibly the single best cider variety) and Gravenstein (one of our favourites) with more restrained amounts of the tannic and bitter Bulmers Norman, Yarlington Mill and Bec D’oie. And finally the variety that gives us the inspiration for the blend name this year – Sturmer Pippen.

Cidermaker’s Select – “Young Sturmer 2.0” 2021

After the success of the Young Sturmer last year – we decided to have another go. This is a strong traditional cider base made up of predominantly Kingston Black, Sturmer and Gravenstein ciders – sharp, with restrained tannin complexity. Softened and sweetened with Sturmer Pippen juice – a late picked variety with lots of fresh acidic zing.

Single Varietal – “Kingston Black”

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.
