Made using the full traditional Champagne method using a blend of our bittersweet cider apples. Sumptuous palate of spiced apple, with a hint of toffee. Mouthfilling fizz, yet balanced and clean to the finish. Enjoy as a celebration drink, or to accompany strong hard cheese, or good salami.

minutemat (4437) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
75cl bottle from Three Counties Cider Shop, Ledbury. Expected a lot more from this given the price, and the awards it’s won. It’s certainly bubbly, and nice enough if a little dry, but just lacks a sweet fruitiness and real character. Given the stellar quality of other Once Upon A Tree ciders this is a little disappointing.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Picked this up from Tanners Wine Merchants, Hereford July 8th 2012. Consumed at Jan & Charlotte’s, Ulfborg, Denmark in company of Jan, Charlotte, Craig, Stella, Morten & Loz 18.05.13 Very champagne like, dry, fruity and quite explosive out of the bottle, as Jan found out :-) chuckle.. The dryness is apparent from the off. I think that this is aimed at the champagne market, and whilst not totally my thing and what I am generally looking for from a cider, I have to say for what it is, it is very good!
