COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled - A blended medium Dry cider.
NOTE: The draught Black Dragon is a different product from the bottled version and has a separate listing.

The juice pressed from these apples is fermented and matured in oak barrels to produce a cider rich in colour, body and flavour with a fresh fruity aroma.
Join us in celebrating a truly magnificent achievement.

omega (712) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 25, 2014
The most interesting of the five ciders I have tried from this cidery as the oak does come through to give more depth to the product. Lacked freshness, though and came across a bit staid.
