This complex fruit cider combines barrel-aged cherry wine with new season keeved cider.
Somerset cherries were fermented on-the-flesh in July 2019 and aged in red wine barrels for seven months. Dry-herbed meadowsweet adds subtle almond notes and cryo-extracted floribunda crabs add tart acidity. Natural sweetness and soft tannins are layered in from Somerset bittersweet apples for a confident cider finish.
