2013 Hampshire Heritage

Hampshire Heritage is made from over 25 cider and desert varieties of apples, blended as a 50/50 mix to give what we refer to as a 'Hampshire style of cider'. This blend produces a near dry cider that has plenty of tannin and body whilst retaining a good sharpness - stopping it from being bone dry.

This cider is exclusively made from cider and desert apples sourced from the Fruitwise Heritage Orchards near Southampton, making it a truly Hampshire born and bred cider.

It is supplied as a draught, traditionally flat cider, and as a bottle conditioned naturally sparkling cider. As it is unfiltered, expect some yeast sediment in bottles, or a slightly hazy draught.

Hampshire Heritage, made in the traditional method won 1st prize at the Big Apple Cider Trials in Hereforshire, 2013.
