Across the green, pleasant, and often, very damp land of the West Country, beautiful orchards capture that most fleeting British sunshine. Whilst many have unfortunately been stripped or uprooted, deemed too expensive or difficult to maintain, thankfully, there remain a number whose custodians are following their intuition, taking their time (and taking influence from the newer generation of winemakers) in order to produce some stunning Ciders & Perries.
Often finding their way onto our dinner tables as a cracking aperitif, or sparring partner with a rich piece of pork, we hope you enjoy these refreshing expressions of fruit as much as we do.
As our tastes change through the season, so will this selection, but currently you'll find:
2019 Commix, Wilding Cider, Chew Magna
A beautiful dry, fruity still table cider from Sam & Beccy. A perfect foil for a smoked food and bits straight off the barbie.
2019 Reserve, Smith Hayne, Crediton
Anna and Will Chambers have spent the last 10 years combining their day jobs with a love for orchards. With it they have created this delightful medium sweet, lightly sparkling cider.
2020 Saison Pomme, Find & Foster, Huxham
Polly & Matt Hilton have spent the last 5 years seeking out the hidden and forgotten orchards of the Exe Valley, in order bring them back to life. This is their ode to the traditional harvest beer, a quaffable, dry and spicy offering made for the seasonal workers in the fields. No manual labour needed on your part to enjoy this though.
And, if you opt for the additional 3 bottles, you'll also enjoy:
2020 Tamoshanta, Pilton, Shepton Mallet
A cracking, lightly smoky and yet sweet sparkling cider from modern master Martin Berkeley. Initial fermentation begins in vats but on Burns Night the young cider is transferred to Scotch whisky barrels to finish and mature.
2020 Fine Perry (Yellow Huffcap & Oldfield), Gould Ciders & Perries, Grampound
Hidden off the main road into Truro is Jonathan Gould's orchard. From this 3 acre plot he toils humbly to create some of the country's finest ciders and perries. This blend of heritage perry pear varieties bring a dryness and none of the cloying sweetness often associated with the mass produced modern offerings. To be savoured.
2019 Babouche, Wilding Cider, Chew Magna
Sam & Beccy's yearly ancestral method, dry sparkling cider is an incredible dance partner with your local chippy's best catch of the day offering.
