Bottled only. Available in 330ml & 500ml bottles. Packaged as Aspall Dry Suffolk Cider for export.
Of mid straw-gold colour with a clean, light aroma of dessert apples, Premier Cru is dry, round and creamy on the palate with a good acid balance, pleasant soft tannins and an elegant, long finish.
A champagne taste that embodies the essence of an orchard, it has enticed an admiring audience who describe it as ‘pale, subtle and crisp, with a fresh aroma of English apples.’
An ideal partner for charcuterie and mild cheeses. Premier Cru also provides a very harmonious partnership with spicy foods, particularly curry.

Bottle. Purchased at Kingstown Liquors - Kingstown, RI. Lightly sulfured and cooked caramel aroma, fruity and light. Flavor is good. Extra clean, but with a tart closure and some aged gouda, which is a good thing. Bubbly, refreshing, but full bodied and rich. Enjoyable and solid, if not overly complex.

High gravity cider amd finishes with much less sweetness tham would be typical. Otjer than that not really worth mentioning. Very mild and forgettable.

stoutchap (416) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Pale straw pour, super fizzy with a lightning fast soda-ish head. Light and refreshing. Light on the palate, but not watery. Crisp green apple taste, with a nice balanced tartness. Slight metallic aftertaste, but quite refreshing.

Dobry cydr wytrawny i mocny, troche rozgrzewajacy mimo schlodzonej butelki, ktora jest ladna smukla typu "Long neck". Piana jak na cydr spora. Wyrazny posmak sfermentowanych jablek. Polecam

A really nice 0.5l long neck bottle. It’s really pale this! Almost like really thin squash drink and the small bubbly white head that came in the pour is leaving a thin ring on the sides of the glass. It smells of green small apples, some wood, a little bit of cellar and traces of ginger. Smells quite alright. It’s above average on the carbonation level and it has a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Not directly watery, but still thin. It’s either sweet or dry this. Feels really balanced, almost a but to balanced? Again, small green apples, some mustard seeds and traces of pear. A bit metallic almost on the aftertaste. Not something I will remember for to long to be honest, but it’s a drinkable way to balanced cider without to much character. 19.04.2013

500ml bottle served cold at home in a tulip.Pale piddly yellow, No real aroma, slightly sour green apple flavour. Where is the creamy or oaky palate that I associate with top-notch cider? Disappointing, and spelling it "Cyder" is just pretentious.

Bottle at home, split with the old man, from Waitrose Sunningdale, 03/05/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head, carbonation’o’clock in the glass. Nose is light apples and sugars, a little on the thin side. Taste comprises apples, straw, sugars. Full end of medium in body with moderate carbonation belying the visuals, dry and crisp in the finish with a touch of booze. Ok.
