This case bridges the Atlantic Ocean with wonderful ciders from Continental Europe, England and North America
‘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.
Tinston Anatomy Sparkling 2017
Made from 100% freshly-pressed Bramley apple juice. After a primary alcoholic fermentation, it’s left on its natural yeast lees to develop body and complexity, after which it’s naturally settled and minimally filtered. After bottling, it undergoes a secondary fermentation that creates the natural fizz. However, the real magic is the in-bottle on-the-lees ageing which Anatomy undergoes for 12 to 24 months. The length of ageing adds layers of complexity and flavour to create a true stand-out cider with a style that’s akin to a top quality champagne grape wine.
Once Upon A Tree Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Still Cider 2018
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!
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.
