100% JUICE, 100% SATISFACTION
WE MEAN IT – LOVE THEM OR WE’LL REPLACE THEM!*
All the products you’ll find on the Cider Is Wine website are made according to globally accepted grape winemaking rules and regulations: from 100% fruit using no concentrates.
This is very different from mass market ciders, perries and fruit wines where no international regulations apply: here in the UK you can call a drink ‘cider’ or ‘perry’ if it contains just 35% apple or pear juice (even less for fruit wines), all of which can come from concentrate. So, in a word, ‘anonymised’.
Our products are redolent of their terroir, vintage, the fruit used and the skill and passion of the maker – wines by any other name. They cover every hue and taste profile, from the driest of the dry to the sweetest of the sweet, and every point between.
You’ll find they match with a wide range of different foods and cuisines, from the most delicate of fish and vegetarian dishes, to those that are spicy and full flavoured. You can look at the Cider Is Wine Food Matching Wheel to see what we mean.
Look for the Cider Is Wine hologram on every bottle – your guarantee of 100% juice and no concentrates: you really have nothing to lose – and a whole world of taste and satisfaction to explore!
*We’re proud of what we do and the products we sell and have every confidence that each will surprise and delight. So much so that we’ll replace any of these products in this offer if they don’t meet your expectations by giving you a voucher to buy something else from us to the same cost of the original product(s) purchased.
Brännland Iscider 2021
Sweetness and body are hallmarks of Brännland ice ciders. Concentrated using the naturally occurring cold climate in Northern Sweden, the spring season fermentations were soft and harmonious.
The Newt Signature Blend Cyder 2020
Made from over 22 apple varieties, including those picked from The Newt’s Gore Orchard on their estate. A classic West Country cyder, it’s a true expression of the best that is Somerset’s heritage.
King of the Orchard
From an award-winning wine producer, this cider is unadulterated and true to its English roots and heritage. Produced with 100% apples, but a wine by any other name, that delivers the orchard’s terroir in the bottle (to use a wine term) using the method most suited to the apple varieties used.
Gospel Green Rosé 2017
A really innovative cider made from a blend of 20% cooking and 80% dessert apples with a dosage of Pinot Noir. Cellar-aged for a minimum of 12 months, this cider uses the same production technique as Champagne – indeed, Gospel Green is the only cidermaker whose ciders are analysed by the IOC in Epernay, in Champagne – and it very much reflects the Gospel Green house style of finesse and subtlety.
Riestra Sparkling Brut Nature (Espumosa Brut Nature) 2020
The base cider is created through meticulous selection, starting with the best quality apples, then, after pressing and an initial fermentation, the best ciders to make this Sparkling Brut Nature are transferred into bottles, cider yeasts are added to initiate a secondary in-bottle fermentation.
The bottles are left to settle for a minimum of 8 months, resulting in a minimum pressure of 6 atmospheres before carefully disgorging.
Blue Aurora Blueberry Ice Wine
takes 2 kilos of pure Lutton Farm blueberries to make one 37.5cl bottle of Blue Aurora ice wine. Picked, frozen and pressed hard from frozen, then fermented in a stainless steel tank for around 4 weeks. After fermentation the wine is racked, filtered and bottled.
