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 the third edition of Martin's Islay-barrel Plum Wine with keeved cider - and the one he considers his best. Plums were hand picked in summer 2020 with foraging friend Stu from Yonder Brewing and fermented spontaneously, mashing every day for two weeks. The slightly funky plum wine was then matured in islay whisky barrels and blended with sweet keeved cider just before bottling. Expect sharp plum acidity balanced by luscious keeved sweetness, whilst the generous fruit is enhanced by smooth curls of warm smoke.
