From Unsprayed Orchards: Gluten Free - Suitable for Vegans & Coeliacs
What an amazing selection from the Ross-on-Wye Cider & Perry Company! This Duo of Natural Cider embodies everything that is wonderful about Cider and Perry.
4 x 750ml 2019 Ellis Bitter & Foxwhelp – 6.8% ABV
Our Ellis Bitter (82%) and Foxwhelp (18%) grow side-by-side in Hangman’s Orchard, on a steep, south-facing hillside. They ripen at the same time, and thus we often choose to blend them together. These are powerful apples, meaning that the real key to this cider is timing. Fermenting in barrel, patience during maturation, and then choosing when to bottle. The result is a silky cider, characterised by triumphant Foxwhelp-led juiciness that rolls over the palate with a wisp of smoke, and interwoven Ellis Bitter and oak tannins.
4 x 750ml 2019 HMJ + Dabinett + Reinette d’Obry – 7.4% ABV
The three varieties in this cider were pressed and fermented individually, matured and then blended for bottling by us on a cold December morning. It begins with HMJ, a full and grippy bittersweet apple. We add another: Dabinett, fruit- forward and flavoursome. To complete, Reinette d’Obry, a light, yellow, acidic variety that was fermented in oak. Together they produce a cider with balance, body and verve. There is bright juiciness that leads into a deliciously well- ordered symphony of tannins, fruit and oak cask.
4 x 750ml 2019 Dabinett + Ashton Bitter + Browns Apple – 7.4% ABV
This is the classic Herefordshire style blend: 75% bittersweet (two parts Dabinett, one part Ashton Bitter) with 25% sharp to add some juicy acidity and balance in the form of Browns Apple. We gained further complexity by fermenting the Browns and Ashton Bitter in Kentucky and Scottish oak casks respectively. This is cider at both its most simple – just use apples, barrels & time – and its most complete – full ferment tannic and acidic apples balancing dryness, fruit and wood.
Please Note: We may change the above selection if we do not have enough stock.
