This is a blend of traditional Devon apple varieties from Rewe orchard in Huxham, saved and cared for by the Carter family almost a hundred years ago when acres of the orchards around it were torn out. A year long primary fermentation was followed by a year long secondary fermentation & maturation with champagne yeast in the bottle. The result is an elegant & unique sparkling cider dominated by wet-stone minerality.

 

Polly Hilton set up Find & Foster to revive neglected traditional apple orchards in Devon, helping preserve wildlife & biodiversity, and to protect old local apple varieties from extinction. Her ciders are a true expression of these unique varietals and the terroir in these orchards.
