This cider is aged in ex-Sauternes barrels for 8 months. Each of these bottles is packed with flavours of blossom honey, apricots, peach and exotic perfume, all wrapped up with warm baked apple and sweet spice. The cider has a real vinous quality to it, with fine, soft tannins emerging at the finish.
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.
