Item Description:

Six month smokey barrel aged keeved cider. A briny sea blast through the smouldering embers of an orchard peat fire. Confident rounded tannins, soft delicate fruity sweetness and mature acidity on the finish. This batch of keeved cider was spotted as being something different way back in the winter of 2020. With complex fruit and delicate balance it stood out as being worth particular attention to become a special product. It was first left to ferment with a succession of wild yeasts in tank for six months, then transferred to delicately smoked second-use whisky barrels for the same amount of time.

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.
