Item Description:

Charred spice and sticky marmalade on the nose. Bright citrus acidity and cider tannins play together on the palate. Luscious bitterness and fruity keeved sweetness are balanced on the long finish. Back in the marmalade season, Pilton caramelised Seville oranges in a masonry oven. They were roasted over ash logs, with juniper berries and branches of fresh bay and rosemary. The softened fruit was then macerated for two weeks, fermented with natural cider yeast and matured in Jamaican rum casks, before finally being blended with Pilton's naturally sweet keeved cider.

Pilton are artisan producers at the heart of Somerset's cider-land making whole juice sparkling cider by the old English method of keeving. Apples are collected from traditional cider orchards in and around the parish of Pilton and slowly transformed from this full flavoured fruit into unique naturally sweet ciders. Finally, different yeasts and other fruits are weaved in and barrel‑aging techniques are used to create a variety of small batch drinks.
