Our original keeved cider, made by us since 2010.

Fresh bittersweet cider apples are partially fermented to produce a naturally medium cider without sweetening or pasteurisation.

Wild yeasts, cold cellars and the low nutrient orchards of Pilton are all key elements in the process. Light and refreshing, it is best served chilled, as an aperitif or with food.

5% abv | medium dry | 80% fermented

A fruity keeved cider, partially fermented in oak barrels.

Keeving and initial fermentation takes place in large vats but on Burns Night the young cider is transferred to Scotch whisky barrels to finish and mature.

Medium sweet with smokey vanilla tannin and an oaky finish, Tamoshanta is great served chilled with Somerset Cheddar.

2014 WAS A TOP YEAR.

The sun beat down on Somerset orchards for 1618 hours in 2014. And as every cider-maker knows, good sunshine makes good apple juice sugars and good apples make good cider.

A rich dessert cider made from freeze-concentrated apple juice.

Autumn-pressed bittersweet cider apple juice is first keeved and then frozen. In early January it is carefully thawed to extract a rich juice leaving the water still frozen. This concentracted juice is then slowly fermented and matured for nine months.

Intensely sweet, yet clean tasting, this cider is great with dessert.
