A traditional-style, keeved, medium-sweet cider made from fresh fruit by Hecks Cider of Somerset. Dunkerton's Late Sweet originated in Baltonsborough near Glastonbury in the 1940s and the fruit was picked from orchards believed to contain some of the original trees. It is a late-season, sweet apple which has relatively low acidity and tannin, known for making a light and fruity cider. Keeving retains some of the natural sugars and sweetness of the fruit.
The Hecks family have been making traditional farmhouse cider in Somerset for six generations, since 1841. In 1896, they started to sell their cider from the farm shop in Street, where they are still based. They make their ciders and perrys by blending juice from apples and pears all grown locally in the family’s orchards. To read more about Hecks and its heritage click here to see our blog.
