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.
This special reserve cider has been hand crafted exclusively from cider apples grown by traditional methods in ageing orchards.
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.
