Cider of the Week - Blakstoc 'Lazy Day Cucumber'

Cider of the Week - Blakstoc 'Lazy Day Cucumber'

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!

Cider of the Week - Gospel Green 'Original' Cyder

Cider of the Week - Gospel Green 'Original' Cyder

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!
