Hard Rain, made from the second pressing of apples with the addition of water, is a modern interpretation of an old historic drink, ciderkin. For this one, two types of quince were used along with a little bit of Ellis Bitter apples. Bright, floral, tropical and naturally low in alcohol it’s super refreshing and totally crushable! It makes a great summery aperitif, the sort of thing you'd enjoy on the beach or while waiting for the barbie to fire up. It will also work brilliantly with light, fragrant fish dishes and salads. 


Contains naturally occurring sediment. Pour clean, or mix gently for extra flavour.


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.
