Somerset keeved cider

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.

barrel-fermented Somerset keeved cider

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.

Somerset keeved cider

A super-smooth blend of mature Jonagold, with just a touch of funk and a dash of smoke on the finish; sweetened with our classic bittersweet keeved cider.

The distinctive text-only label was created on a 1935 typewriter and features the exploits of the quick brown fox and the lazy dog as they enjoy cider and generally hang out at Cat's bar.

Pomme Pomme

Queen of the Brue

keeved quince

This natural fruit wine is made exclusively from quince, hand picked in orchards on the banks of the river Brue in Somerset. The quince's rose-like floral aroma and unique tartness make a truly distinctive, full flavoured drink with a long fruity finish.

Acidic and tart it goes well with strong cheese or fatty meat.

This still cider is smooth & rich and has been fermenting, ever so slowly, since the balmy autumn of 2018 until the crisp spring of 2020. It perfectly combines the complexity of a keeved cider with the warming funk of a traditional Somerset farmhouse.
