Here's the season 22 Tamoshanta but with a bold new look, reflecting the Scottish connection. As before, this cider undertakes part of its fermentation in recently emptied whisky barrels and is bottled when it is still fresh and fruity. Soft fruity sweetness embraces gentle vanilla tannins and leads to a delicate smokey finish. After a great 2022 summer the alcohol level has come in at 5.9%. Serve chilled, with good Somerset Cheddar.
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.
