Little Pomonas version of a piquette! This was originally a vineyard workers drink, where grape pomace left over from pressing for wine underwent a second pressing with water. The result is a low alcohol drink with a light spritz. This hybrid version uses Solaris & Seyval Blanc grapes and Ellis Bitter apples. The pomace was rehydrated and left for 48 hours before pressing & fermentation, and bottled as a pet nat. A juicy, tropical and refreshing drink with a little funk!


Progressive and experimental cider-makers James and Susanna Forbes have become an essential part of the resurgent interest in fine cider & perry.  Inspired by wine-making techniques, using natural techniques and caring for their environment, they were named ‘2019 Cider Producer of the Year’ by the Hereford Times. They make ciders & perries with character & structure that go especially well alongside a meal.
