New: Hogan's Hazy Rays - 3.9%

3L Bag in Box - £12

"A deliciously light, fruity and moreish fresh pressed hazy cider. This best seller carries an abundant appley aroma to the nose. With more than a hint of citrus and berry delicately balanced against the apple sweetness on the palate, Hazy Rays is the perfect refreshing session drink for those lazy summer days.

TASTING NOTES

Still Cider - Light / Fruity / Citrus & berry"

New: Hogan's Harvest Press - 5.3%

3L Bag in Box - £12

"A distinctively fresh bittersweet, still, cloudy cider. Appley aroma with peaty undertones, this medium dry cider is just challenging enough to be easy drinking. A real taste of the orchard for those ready to embrace proper cider.

TASTING NOTES

Still cider - Fresh / Bittersweet / Earthy"

New: Cotswold Cider Company - No Brainer Cider - 6%

1 Litre Flagon - £5.75

Only an hour from the brewery the Cotswold Cider Company has a dry, still, hazy cider, renowned for its rich, fruity and distinctive quality.  Bottled in an old style 1 litre flagon it looks great too.

Hogan's Medium Cider - 5.4%

500ml - £2.50

"Some 'medium' ciders, not ours, are so full of sugar that your teeth just want to crawl out of your mouth. Look at our ingredients, we just let the natural flavour of our fermented cider apples speak for themselves."

TASTING NOTES

Aromatic / Earthy / Well balanced  / Moreish

Crazy Dave's Medium Berkshire - 5.5%

Still - 500ml Bottle - £2.50                               

We love the story behind Dave's cider. From hobbyist to full time cider maker Dave collects (by hand) tonnes of apples from local orchards and apple trees, many of which are on private land and in gardens. Collecting the fallen apples and taking unwanted fruit Dave processes the cider at his HQ on the Berkshire Collage of Agriculture site.

Made up the road at the Berkshire Collage of Agriculture, Dave turned a hobby into a thriving business. Locally picked apples are used to make this traditional cider.

TASTING NOTES

Still Cider - Sharp / Refreshing / Traditional

Willy's Cider - 4%

500ml Bottle - £2.50

Willy's cider is made at Chase Distillery in Herefordshire, famous for their award-winning vodkas, spirits and liqueurs.

TASTING NOTES

Lightly sparkling - Classically refined / Crisp / Fruity

Angioletti 'Secco' Sparkling Italian Craft Cider - 5%

750ml Bottle - £6.00

Made from 100% Italian apple juice, this is a great, lower alcohol alternative to prosecco.

TASTING NOTE

Fine bubbles - Fine bubbles; aromas of fresh apple and white blossom are followed by intense, fresh flavours of orchard fruits, and a satisfying, clean, crisp aftertaste.

 

Angioletti Rosé with Blueberry' Sparkling Italian Craft Cider - 4%

750ml Bottle - £6.00

Made from 100% Italian apple juice, blended with blueberry juice, this is a great, lower alcohol alternative to prosecco. The blueberry gives the cider a nice Rosé appearance and a slightly sweeter flavour.

TASTING NOTE

Fine bubbles -  Fresh apple flavours balanced by the rounded, juicy character of blueberry fruit. The aftertaste is long, clean and fresh with a hint of creaminess.
