Cider Reviews

When we have a bit of spare time, in between making cider and working on our other jobs, we like to read a few reviews of our cider. It’s so fascinating to find out the aromas and flavours that different people pick up on.

Quite by accident, we happened upon this fabulous video review of our 2019 vintage, single variety 100% Kingston Black still cider. It’s by Chris at Cork & Crown in London, who is clearly extremely knowledgeable and is also a great orator. His videos are so watchable.

The only trouble with watching Chris’s reviews is that once you’ve watched one, it’s far too easy to keep on watching “just one more”. And then you suddenly realise that two or three hours have gone by. But it is time very well time spent in order to further one’s education about real craft cider!

If you prefer to read reviews, the Good Cider Guide website recently reviewed our three 2019 vintage ciders. You can find their reviews via the following links:

Milo’s Magic review

Whiskey Barrel Aged cider review

Kingston Black cider review

Considering 2019 was the first year that we made cider in ernest, with a view to actually selling some, we are pretty chuffed with these reviews.

Cider and daffodils

Remember that all of our ciders are made from 100% freshly pressed apples that we picked ourselves. We press the apples here on our farm in our small cidery. There is no industrial processing involved, no apple concentrate, no nasty additives, and no sugar or artificial sweeteners added either.
