Martin Berkeley makes cider in Pilton, Somerset. He specialises in the traditional English method of keeving, making naturally sweet, naturally sparkling ciders without added yeasts or sugar. He uses apples from traditional cider orchards in and around Pilton, and ferments slowly in his cool, Victorian cellar.

 

This is a fruity fun blend - wood-oven roasted bitter oranges with sweet keeved cider. Back in the marmalade season, Martin caramelised Seville oranges in a masonry oven. They were roasted over ash logs, with juniper berries and branches of fresh bay and rosemary. The softened fruit was then macerated for two weeks, fermented with natural cider yeast and matured in Jamaican rum casks, before finally being blended with the Pilton's naturally sweet keeved cider. Expect charred spice and sticky marmalade on the nose. Bright citrus acidity and cider tannins play together on the palate. Luscious bitterness and fruity keeved sweetness are balanced on the long finish.
