We seem to be at the end, or nearing the end, of summer (sadly). Dry those tears though, and help yourself to a cracking, brand new cider from Blakstoc… ‘Lazy Day Cucumber’. This week’s ‘Cider of the Week’.
“Nothing screams ”This is summer“ like fresh cucumber. Add a hint of elderflower and you‘ve got yourself a perfect lazy day combo.
We infused this cider with freshly picked blossoms of Styrian elder bushes, fermented cucumber juice from Seewinkel and a twist of Lemon Drop hops, which adds notes of green tea, citrus, mint and melon.”
We have 2 ‘Great British Cider’ tastings on at the bar & shop this week, so it felt right to choose a Great British Cider as our ‘Cider f the Week’…
Black Fox is hand crafted with up to 14 different, carefully blended cider apple varieties to deliver a deliciously rounded cider with a lively, tangy finish and light honey hues.
Pop down this week to try before you buy!
This week’s ‘Cider of the Week’ is Bollhayes. They are visiting our arches bar & shop this Saturday from 4pm - 5.30pm to give out free samples too… make sure you don’t miss it!
Bollhayes will be showcasing all 3 vintages of their Champagne Method Cider. No entry fee, just a chance to try some great premium Cider, find out how it is made, talk to a producer and have fun. This really is a great opportunity for all the wine fans who "don't like cider" have their perceptions challenged, free of charge.
You may recognise this cider after it’s appearance on This Morning last week, where friend of Pilango Gabe Cook (aka the Ciderologist) gave Rochelle and Mollie a run through of some affordable, British ciders.
We have stocked Gospel Green for a while now, and love it as a real alternative to a sparkling wine (see our latest blog post about this here). It is a sophisticated, champagne-method cider that will satisfy the palate of any wine lover. Come and give it a try!
