Short Stirling 4.5%

Simon’s Cider – Cambridgeshire
A Session Cider! A delicious and refreshing cider in the Eastern Counties style. Fully fermented cider is blended with apple juice to give a proper appley cider with a crisp finish. Best served nice and cold, even over ice. I mean once you’ve bought it do what you like with it!


East Meets West 6.4%

Simon’s Cider – Cambridgeshire
A blend of Eastern Counties style and Dabinett. The result of the best ‘mates around blending’ session, the brief was to create a West Country style scrumpy with mainly Eastern Counties style cider. The result is mighty fine, it’s fresh, appley and tannic. The Eastern Counties element adds the apple hit and acidity, with the Dabinett weighing in with a big whack of old fruit and tannin.


Gladiator 8.4%

Lilley’s Cider – Somerset
This strong rustic cider with its Roman flair has everything. Well rounded, fruity, packed full of flavour and intoxicatingly easy to drink for an 8.4% cider.
