BRÄNNLAND

Brännland Pernilla Perle 2017

This year’s Pernilla Perle differs from earlier years in that it is drier and has a higher profile of apple clarity with more outspoken tannins. 2017 was one of the hardest years for decades for apple growing  in Sweden with heavy frost and hail in the spring. As a result, the 2017 harvest has given our cider a rather more austere, yet elegant and more complex style compared to previous vintages. The balance between sugar, alcohol and fruit has been joined by a length that holds great promise for future development and ageing.

Brännland Claim Iscider 2017

Claim Iscider claims new territory for ice cider. An ice wine made from 100% Swedish apples, concentrated and elevated using the natural winter cold of northern Sweden. A true and original expression of the country, its apples and the family of ciders from which it was born.

White flowers on the nose and juicy, sweet, fresh acidity on the finish. Claim evokes lightness and light, spring and summer, in contrast to the flavours and scents of late autumn and winter apples associated with the company’s traditional ice cider.

Whilst holding true to the IsCider methodology, 100% fresh picked Swedish apples, this selection is a journey of discovery. IsCiders traditionally are rich and sweet, naturally produced, however Claim is a revelation. It reveals that delicacy and precision are things of beauty, which show themselves through the apple communicated by fermentation and the application of careful winemaking standards. Whilst this does not conform to the Quebec standards, it does write its own rule book, thus claiming new territory for IsCider.

BROADWAY PRESS

Broadway Press Ice Cyder Original 50cl

Made using a sophisticated cryo-extraction process, this 100% pure apple juice cyder creates a truly unique drinking experience. After becoming the People’s Cider Champion at The Royal Three Counties Show in 2019, this cyder uses the same cider apple varieties from that show with a blend of culinary and desert apples, including Russet and Bramley.

CIDENTRO

Cidentro Lightly Sparkling Cider 2018 75cl

Created from English bittersweet and bitter-sharp cider apples using 100% freshly pressed juice. This dry and lightly sparkling cider has perfectly balanced tannins and acidity giving a smooth round finish. This product is gluten-free, vegan friendly and contains sulphites for freshness.

Cidentro Still Cider 2018 75cl

An exclusive dry, still vintage cider from the finest English cider apples using 100% freshly pressed juice, it’s matured for 6 months for flavours to fully develop, giving an elegance of style and depth of character which can be enjoyed in the same way as wine.

Cidentro Rosé 2018 75cl

Inspired by Provence-style rosés and the popular on-trend love of pink drinks, Cidentro’s rosé is an exciting cider made from 100% English apples with a dosage of Pinot Noir wine to create a dry and lightly sparkling rosé cider that’s ideal as an aperitif or paired with food.

EDEN

Eden Origins

‘Origins’ is a nod to the shared DNA of apples across time and continents. This cider is made from varieties treasured for their contributions to cider, baking, sauce, and a few for eating out-of-hand.

All the apples for this cider come from small orchards, and consist of historic English and New England varieties.

Eden Cinderella’s Slipper

The apple trees for this still cider were planted on the west-sloping meadow of an abandoned dairy consisting of thin and granitic Appalachian loam. Made from twenty varieties of late-harvested apples with the combined juice left to mature in stainless steel. Unfiltered, un-fined, it’s both earthy and wild, yet gracefully supple.

GOSPEL GREEN

Gospel Green Brut 2018 75cl

A ground-breaking dry cider produced in Hampshire uses the same production technique as Champagne. Luxurious to savour, with just the right balance of sweetness. The pure and fresh flavour of apple with the double fermentation process adds to its complexity. Cider connoisseurs will adore it.

“Bright with a super-dry zing, perfect to serve in place of a top sparkling wine, or to pour with a cheeseboard for a real treat.” Olly Smith, Wine Expert, Great British Food Awards

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.

“Gospel Green Rosé is the finest bottle fermented ‘cyder’ in the UK. A very small addition of Pinot Noir is added to the top quality English apple juice and then it is fermented to make an elite fizz. This is one of our country’s greatest drinks!” Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail

KILLAHORA

Killahora Orchards ‘Johnny Fall Down’ Early Apples Cider 2017

This 2017 vintage medium dry bittersweet cider is made from 100% juice from Irish apples. The apples are macerated and pressed by hand using wild fermentation with minimal intervention.

As with all Killahora ciders, this is slow fermented at cooler winter temperatures and then matured for between 1 and 2 years to allow a range of flavours to develop from the different stages of fermentation.

As the name suggests, the cider is a blend of early ripening varieties of apples which creates a light, crisp and fruity cider.

A Piece of Irish – and Brand – History: The name Johnny Fall Down is a play on the name of a legendary cider that was made in Cork, called ‘Johnny Jump Up’. The story, which is told in a traditional Irish song, goes that the cider was aged in whiskey barrels from the local Jameson distillery and that this gave it quite a kick! This cider is a lot more refined, but it’s a good story!

ONCE UPON A TREE

Once Upon A tree Wild Flight 2015 37.5cl

Made with 100% Dabinett apple juice fermented entirely with its own wild yeast, firstly in stainless steel tank, then racked off, bottled and aged over 3 years.

Once Upon A Tree Kingston Redstreak 2016 75cl

Somerset Redstreak matures in early October ,whereas Kingston Black is very late to ripen and harvested in early November with both  varieties harvested at optimum ripeness and condition.

This difference in ripening times lets the cidermaker carefully collect in the harvests, press separately and prepare the juices for fermentation. The ciders are ferment for around 3 to 4 months before becoming fully dry.  They are then racked off lees, blended and filtered to crystal clear.

Once Upon A trees Dabinett Pinot Noir Co-Ferment 2018 75cl

This cider co-ferment builds on a passion to raise the profile of cider as a wine alternative, which combines winemaking techniques and grape bi-products with cider. Made from 100% not-from-concentrate fruit, from a single vintage of Dabinett and dessert apples, fermented over Bacchus wine yeast lees and aged for 9 months.

Once Upon A Tree Bacchus Cider Co-Ferment 2018 75cl

This cider co-ferment builds on a passion to raise the profile of cider as a wine alternative and combines winemaking techniques and grape bi-products with cider. Made from 100% not-from-concentrate fruit from a single vintage of Dabinett and dessert apples fermented over Bacchus wine yeast lees and aged on these lees for 9 months.

The style and presentation of the cider is designed to share with family, friends – and food! Complex and aromatic, this range of ciders are a prefect food complement.

Once Upon A Tree Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Cider 2018 75cl

Made from a single vintage, this 100% fresh-pressed fruit, never-from-concentrate cider combines a field blend of bitter sweet apples grown at Tidnor Wood Orchard, part of the original National Collection of cider apples, with dessert apples from Once Upon A Tree’s Dragon Orchard.

Complex and aromatic, the style and presentation of this cider is designed to share with family, friends – and food!

THE NEWT

The Newt Kingston Black 2019 33cl

The Kingston Black apple is thought to be named after the village of Kingston, mid-Somerset and produces the perfect bitter-sharp juice for delectable single-variety cyder. Indeed, it’s considered by some to be the ‘King of Cyder Apples’. The juice is first cold-fermented until nearly dry, creating a floral, yet strong and flavoursome cyder with floral notes.

The Newt Fine Cyder 2018 75cl

Hand-picked local Somerset apples are pressed and slowly cold-fermented to create a complex and natural flavour profile. This Fine Cyder dry cyder balance acidity, sourness and a touch of sweetness to create a lovely, thirst-quenching drink.

WELSH MOUNTAIN

Welsh Mountain Borders Bittersweet 2017 75cl

Made from 100% fresh juice, naturally fermented and cellar aged for between 6 months and two years before bottling, this cider is live and unpasteurised, with no added sulphites. The apples are picked from a mature standard orchard that’s grazed by sheep, but otherwise left to grow wild. Located on the Wales / Shropshire border it contains many varieties that traditionally are grown in this area, including Hereford Redstreak, Bloody Butcher, Morgan sweet and Brown Snout.

These fine old bittersweet varieties combine to make a very complex cider rich and deep in flavour – a truly great expression of our native wine.
