Limited run, now sold out. Full range of Wilding we stock here.
The new vintage of this perennial favourite. 2021 was an exceptional year for apple quality but gave just a small crop in Wilding's Ditcheat Hill orchard. The blend was tweaked to account for this and Dove and Harry Masters Jersey have been introduced alongside alongside Yarlington Mill, Ashton Brown Jersey, Browns and Sweet Coppin. The mild winter resulted in a drier cider than usual, although it is Medium Sweet, and is arguably the best vintage of Ditcheat Hill yet. Still sweet but just revealing a little more of the special terroir in this beautiful orchard.

Wilding Cider are orchard cider makers and are based in Chew Magna, North Somerset. They mostly grow Somerset cider apple varieties, in traditional orchards, managing them in a careful organic way. Fruit is picked from the ground, letting the fruit mature and fully ripen before pressing, and then fermented gently and slowly with wild yeasts, no sulphites and plenty of time.
