Wimbledon-inspired Cider of the Week - Saxby's Strawberry Cider

Wimbledon-inspired Cider of the Week - Saxby's Strawberry Cider

As Wimbledon started this week we’ve selected an excellent strawberry cider from Saxby’s as our ‘Cider of the Week’. A lovely, apt cider to drink while enjoying the tennis!

Saxby’s are based on their family farm in Farndish, a small village on the Northamptonshire/Bedfordshire border. They grow their own apples in the orchards on the farm. These are carefully selected English cider varieties and dessert fruits which they slowly mature and expertly blend. Their award-winning range of ciders are pressed on their farm using real real cider and real fruit juices– no flavourings, syrups or nasties.

Cider of the week - Pilton 'Solstice' Cider

Cider of the week - Pilton 'Solstice' Cider

In honour of it being the week of Glastonbury, it seemed fitting to choose this cider as our ‘Cider of the Week’. Pilton are artisan producers at the heart of Somerset’s cider-land making whole juice sparkling cider by the old English method of keeving.

Apples are collected from traditional cider orchards in and around the parish of Pilton and slowly fermented for six months in their cool Victorian cellar before bottling.

Is Perry the new Pilsner?

Is Perry the new Pilsner?

If you are out this weekend, and find yourself in need of something long, cool, crisp and refreshing, you may be tempted to follow the crowds and seek inspiration from the Eastern side of Europe in going for an Ice cold Pilsner.

Here is one thought. Be brave, do something different.

For a similar, cool, crisp sense of refreshment, go west.

Go Perry (or Pear Cider).
