A man, fallen on hard times, sold his art collection but kept his wine cellar. When asked why he did not sell his wine, he said: "A man can live without art, but not without culture. ‎- Unknown Author

Cyderkyn 3.8% PDF Print E-mail

Aspall'saltWe've had Aspall's sparkling bottled cyders here for some years but we've managed to grab some of their traditional suffolk cyder to see what it tastes like beyond the bubbles!

Cyderkyn at a lightweight 3.8% has a clean aroma of fresh green apples and toffee, giving this uncarbonated cyder a light to medium body. Slightly sweet with a dry finish.

Cyderkyn was a style of cider common in the Ale Houses of 17th, 18th and 19th century England. Listed on the “Bill of Fare” for the Plymouth Plantation Pilgrims’ 1627 Harvest Dinner. It was often consumed alongside and instead of small beer Aspall Cyderkyn is a recreation of such a style, consumed in Suffolk since 1728.

Taste Notes [under construction]: Made from a blend of cider apples. A lovely amber, easy drinking sweet cider with a nice dry finish.

Richards Dry DeeSiedr 6.4% PDF Print E-mail

A new venture in cider down on Deeside, Flintshire, by two chums Scott Johnson & Warren Hughes and Scott's father Richard. Now in their third season, Richards Dry, now at 6.4% and delicious!

Oh yes, the cider got it's name from Scott's father Richard (if you haven't guessed already).

Taste Notes [under construction]: With about 10% Dabinett and a mixture of local apples from our 2014 Cider Pressing, this is a warming cider, smooth in the mouth with a pleasant honeyed nose that belies the dryness of this lovely cider.  The best we've tasted yet!
