Review / Tasting notes

“Bracing citrus acidity and fruitiness, think rhubarb and goosebery, hints of melon and elderflower mingle with honeyed sweetness and prickling sparkle. Drinks great straight from the fridge.”

Just as you should never judge a book by its cover; never judge a cider by it’s aroma.  This beautifully balanced perry, warms you initially with pear and honey, before a rush of citrus, elderflower and melon. The infused sweet taste lingers long on the palate, begging you to sample more.  

Verdict

A high quality perry, perfectly combining sweet and sour to create a memorable taste that never disappoints.  Summer in bloom, a comfy chair and this perry: the perfect way to spend a day!
