Made from the second pressing of perry pears with the addition of water, spontaneously fermented on the lees of fermented damson and apples. The Hard Rain range is Little Pomona's modern interpretation of an old historic drink, ciderkin, or in this case, a "perrykin". A very refreshing sparkling summer drink, delicately fruity with an etherial pink colour.  Exremely smashable at only 2.9 %. 


Contains naturally occurring sediment. Only 530 bottles made!


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.
