This is Little Pomonas yearly homage to their home orchard, the one that started it all, and the retired farmer who sold them the orchard. A still blend of Dabinett, Harry Masters Jersey, Foxwhelp & Ellis Bitter, the 2018 vintage was a great one - a long hot summer and warm autumn. You get the full ripeness of the fruit - with notes of apricot & straw among others - balanced with acidity and grippy tannins. This goes perfectly with food. It will also age very well over the next few years.


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.
