BARREL-AGED DRY CIDER
Bright / Earthy / Dry
Believed to reside in the orchard’s oldest tree, the Apple Spirit is feted each year to ensure a bountiful harvest the next. Songs are sung, evil spirits scared off by noisy revellers, and cider is poured on the tree’s roots to reawaken it. Raise a glass of this tart, structured cider – made with new world Heirloom apple varieties – to the apple tree’s prosperity.
