This is a wonderful rustic but smooth blend of mostly bittersweets from two ancient orchards in Brampford Speke, 4 miles north of Exeter. Red apple skin tannins are balanced nicely with juicy fruit, fresh acidity and hints of spice, smoke, & yeasty notes. It is dry with a gentle fizz. Classic bittersweet westcountry cider done very well!

 

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.
