Sam and Beccy of Wilding Cider grow organic vegetables and make cider near Chew Magna in Somerset. All fruit comes from unsprayed and unfertilised traditional orchards. Naturally, only wild yeasts are used, with no filtering and no additives whatsoever.
This cider is made from 100% Kingston Black, a classic bittersharp, and showcases this variety perfectly. Sam and Beccy decided to cold rack this cider to retain natural sweetness which really brings out its character - it is full & ripe with typical aromas of apple pie & toffee, and just enough bitter tannin to balance out the sweetness.
