Orchard Pig - Explorer

Orchard Pig - Explorer

 

abv: 4.5%

Golden & Complex

Medium Sweet - Hazy - Slightly Fizzy

The intrepid explorer will know that they’ve found themselves in Orchard Pig’s territory as soon as the aroma of Explorer hits their snout. Initially, there’s just a hint of the farmyard, balanced by the sweet scent of apple blossom.
That all-important first sip delivers the full bittersweet richness of cider apples, followed by the lingering sweetness of ripe fruit, including notes of the dark autumn berries from the hedgerow.

Sandford Orchards - Shaky Bridge

Sandford Orchards - Shaky Bridge

 

abv: 6.0%

Golden & Fruity

Medium Sweet - Hazy - Slightly Fizzy

A rich medium sweet sparkling cider. All the body and bite of a scrumpy, with a fresh apple finish which makes for a distinctly moreish and enjoyable cider. Named after a local landmark in years gone by ‘Shaky’ was a deadly right of passage accross the raging torrent of a local stream, a true test of character, putting the rope bridges of the high himalayas to shame.

Westons - Old Rosie

Westons - Old Rosie

 

abv: 7.3%

Golden & Fruity

Medium - Cloudy - Still

Old Rosie is Weston Cider's flagship traditional unfiltered cloudy cider, matured in oak vats with an ABV of 7.3%

Mid golden and straw-like in colour, Old Rosie is a cloudy, medium-bodied fruity cider that has a wonderful aroma of wild berry-fruits, honey and vintage cider-barrels.

With this classic 'scrumpy cider' aroma and additional complexity on the palate, Old Rosie captures the heart of Herefordshire, therefore underpinning the rural provenance of cloudy cider.
