Cidentro Cider House
Cider From England (Leicestershire)
From a hat full of apples – a nod to the verse in the Wassail incantation “….hats full, caps full, three bushel bags full” – comes a cider to celebrate.
Cidentro produce a unique range of ciders created from English cider apples. Inspired by tradition and a time when English cider was a distinguished drink, they aim to bring a modern approach to cider for enjoyment in the same way as wine.
The company has turned a family interest in cidermaking into a business with the planting of an orchard of over 500 cider apple trees on their farm in Melton Mowbray. Provenance has been the inspiration: with Melton Mowbray considered to be the UK’s ‘Rural Capital of Food’ and home to the world-famous pork pie and Stilton cheese, the aim has been to produce an elegant cider to match this award-winning local produce.
Cidentro ciders only use 100% pressed juice from heritage apples, with no added water or artificial sweeteners. Indeed, it takes around 14 apples to make a 75cl bottle of their cider so, quite literally, “from a hat full of apples…” comes a cider to celebrate.
The ciders then mature for at least 6 months to let the flavours fully develop and show their inherent quality. Each cider is designed to appeal to those who appreciate that the cidermaking process is the same as wine, with such exceptional quality a key driver in choosing a Cidentro cider.
The company’s range includes still cider, sparkling ciders and a rosé cider created from a blend of English cider and English Pinot Noir Wine.
