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.

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.
