Location: Bromyard, Herefordshire
First launched onto the market in 2017. Susanna and James Forbes’ story started a few years earlier, when they found their dream orchard in Thornbury, North Herefordshire:120 trees with four classic cider apple varieties. Inspired by the tasted and vision of notable producers, their quest was to work with the best possible fruit using natural methods to fashion ciders and perries with true flavours. Ciders with the character and structure to match with food.
Golden yellow, sweetly aromatic, it’s layered with fruit, embracing the entirely of the apple from skin to core as well as heady scent of barrel, perfume and spice. Ripe tannins, with the feel of wet slate, so typical of the vintage, build and persist through the finish.
