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.

In Touch

grape skin contact

Grape skin contact, keeved cider.

The super tasty cider is made by soaking pinot noir and bacchus grape skins in fermenting cider for six days. The skins are strained off and the cider allowed to referment and then mature for six months, before being blended with naturally sweet new season keeved cider. Guest blended by Martyn Goodwin-Sharman.

Fresh juicy fruit on the nose, followed by a complex interplay of grape and apple tannins.
