    • From their website:

      'A small batch of 270 litres was pressed in late 2020 using a blend of cider apple varieties from Herefordshire orchards. With a low pH no sulphites were added. The fermentation using only wild yeasts progressed slowly and after two rackings slowed down almost to a standstill at 1.0065. After almost a year in the tank 10ppm DAP was added to encourage natural carbonation before bottling into 500ml bottles.
