Cider from Wales (Powys)
Welsh Mountain Cider is family run and specialises in making real cider that’s made from 100% fresh pressed juice from carefully selected varieties of sweet, bittersweet and sharp apples, with no added water, sugar, or anything else.
Allowed to naturally ferment slowly over the winter with their own indigenous, natural yeasts and cellar-aged for between 6 months and two years, the ciders are then bottled unfiltered and unpasteurised and without added sulphites. This produces the complex bouquet and rich flavours you would expect from a truly great expression of what is essentially our native wine: cider made in this way without the water, glucose-fructose syrup, saccharine, malic acid, and food colouring is a true example of authenticity and richness in food.
Welsh Mountain’s Prospect Orchard is a 6 acre museum orchard of over 450 varieties of cider, dessert and cooking apple and pear trees located at over 1,100 ft in the Cambrian Mountains of mid-Wales to make it the highest altitude cidery in Britain.
“Best cider in Wales. Perhaps the world.” Joe Wadsack, BBC Drinks Expert
“Cider still has a bad reputation and a lot of it is rubbish, but there’s some good stuff out there -the best I’ve had is from Welsh Mountain Cider.” James Martin, Chef & Broadcaster
