Michelin keeved review ~ Cork & Crown video #300

Michelin keeved review

Described as “something a little bit special” by the inimitable Chris of Cork & Crown in his 300th cider review video. It’s our one and only, award-winning, Michelin single-variety keeved cider.

We love Chris’s videos and this one certainly didn’t disappoint. And there’s as much information about cheese as there is about cider. Fabulous stuff!

“Gorgeous nose” reminiscent of tarte tatin, and a flavour that is “really good”. We’ll very happily take those comments for our very first attempt at keeving. Thanks so much, Chris!

If you’d like to try this very special cider for yourself, it is currently available online from Scrattings, here. It was a very small batch though so you’ll need to get in there quickly to avoid missing out!

IWSC award-winning ciders

IWSC bronze award
IWSC Bronze Award

We are very happy to announce that we now have two IWSC award-winning ciders!

Crazily, in only our second year of cidermaking, we decided to enter some of our 2020 vintage ciders in the International Wine & Spirit Competition‘s 100% Fermented Fruit Exclusive Tasting.

In collaboration with Cider Is Wine, the IWSC held the first 100% juice, not-from-concentrate ciders, perries and fruit wines tasting. The aim was to “raise awareness amongst the trade and industry, and champion this under-explored category, as well as awarding medals to outstanding products”.

Some of the finest palates in the land took part in the tasting, which took place in July 2021. We are therefore absolutely delighted to announce that we were awarded two bronze medals! Our bronze award winners are:

  • Michelin single variety 2020 keeved, pét nat 75cl fine cider
  • Yarlington Mill single variety 2020 500ml cider

When we look at the quality of the other cidermakers who also won bronze awards, we feel very proud and priviledged that our ciders were rated similarly to them.
