Cider Is Wine

You did read that correctly. Cider has changed a lot from the cider we all know and love, and has moved to a more sophisticated drink.  Cider Is Wine, ask you to forget the cider from our youth and discover a new cider that is sophisticated, elegant and delicious.  Which has a place right next to any bottle of wine.

Cidentro Still Cider 2018

An exclusive dry, still vintage cider from the finest English cider apples using 100% freshly pressed juice, it’s matured for 6 months for flavours to fully develop, giving an elegance of style and depth of character which can be enjoyed in the same way as wine.

Cidentro Still Cider is gluten free, vegetarian and vegan friendly and only contains sulphites for freshness.

Once Upon A Tree Bacchus Cider Co-Fermented 2018

This cider co-ferment builds on a passion to raise the profile of cider as a wine alternative and combines winemaking techniques and grape bi-products with cider. Made from 100% not-from-concentrate fruit from a single vintage of Dabinett and dessert apples fermented over Bacchus wine yeast lees and aged on these lees for 9 months.

The style and presentation of the cider is designed to share with family, friends – and food! Complex and aromatic, this range of ciders is a prefect food complement.

Brannland Claim Iscider 2017

Claim Iscider claims new territory for ice cider. An ice wine made from 100% Swedish apples, concentrated and elevated using the natural winter cold of northern Sweden. A true and original expression of the country, its apples and the family of ciders from which it was born.

White flowers on the nose and juicy, sweet, fresh acidity on the finish. Claim evokes lightness and light, spring and summer, in contrast to the flavours and scents of late autumn and winter apples associated with the company’s traditional ice cider.

Whilst holding true to the IsCider methodology, 100% fresh picked Swedish apples, this selection is a journey of discovery. IsCiders traditionally are rich and sweet, naturally produced, however Claim is a revelation. It reveals that delicacy and precision are things of beauty, which show themselves through the apple communicated by fermentation and the application of careful winemaking standards. Whilst this does not conform to the Quebec standards, it does write its own rule book, thus claiming new territory for IsCider.

If you know a wine lover why not treat them to a bottle or 6 they have a lot more choices in their shop


Fruit Bowl

If you are looking for stocking fillers but want to stay away from chocolate. Fruit Bowl have the perfect solution with their range of snacks.  You can choose from fruit peelers in a range of flavours, fruit flakes and raisins.
