This natural fruit wine is made exclusively from quince - the apples third cousin- hand picked in orchards on the banks of the river Brue in Somerset. The quince's rose-like floral aroma and unique tartness make a truly distinctive, full flavoured drink with a long fruity finish. Dry, acidic and tart it goes well with strong cheese or fatty meat.
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. Pilton Cider are based in Shepton Mallet.
