Hard Rain, made from the second pressing of apples with the addition of water, is a modern interpretation of an old historic drink, ciderkin. This version is made with Dabinett apples and infused with Bramling Cross and Cascade hops. Naturally low in alcohol, it’s super refreshing, almost shandy-like to drink. Bone dry with citrus and berry fruit notes from the hops. A true summer crusher!


Contains naturally occurring sediment. Store upright, chill well and pour gently.


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.
