Henneys Apple Sweet Cider is a sparkling cider blended with a little apple juice to give a lovely mouthfeel and a fruity palate bursting with sweet apple character.
At Henney’s we believe that the very best way to make cider is to start with high quality ingredients and to keep the process as simple as possible. This has helped us to win many prestigious awards in recent years. Each autumn, carefully selected, locally grown, varieties of genuine cider apples are milled, pressed and fermented. The resulting cider is then blended and stored through the winter allowing it to mature and develop a rich and mellow flavour. Our finished cider retains the distinctive fruity aromatic character or ripe bittersweet apples whilst being crisp light and refreshing. Sip or quaff, we don’t mind, as long as you enjoy it. Cheers! A blend of Frome Valley Dry Cider with concentrated apple juice which gives added sweetness and a fruitier flavour.

Colour: Bright clear golden, small fluffy head. Bottled, 500ml *** Nose: Sour apples, citrus, mild oak. *** Mouthfeel: Medium body, hardly watery. Moderate carbonation. *** Taste: Strong sour-sweet apples at the start, with explicit vinegar notes. The latter are dominant in the middle, the finish is rather dry, but smooth. Aftertaste is sweet & sour again, and long. *** Impressions: Really fruity and refreshing cider, nice body and mouthfeel. The monicker "apple-sweet" is a bit misleading considering the pronounced vinegar. Doesn’t make your mouth dry after consumption, unlike many mass-produced ciders. Well done.

danlo (2550) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
500ml bottle. Golden colour, white foam head that quickly dissipates away and aroma of apple, apple skin, oak, hint of sulphur. Taste is sweet, apple, fruity & tangy, with some apple skin and drying tannins. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry tannic finish with residual sweetness. Quite OK.

500ml bottle (Kelm, Tallinn)
Bright orange, clear. Lovely cider aroma, of apples and woody notes. Almost a dry taste, plenty of sharp spiky esters and more - not so sweet. Later some almost yeasty hints, just as I expect from a dry cider. However, it’s not lacking sugars there’s a lovely toffee sweetness in the body and in the late finish too, where it’s accompanied by pure fresh apples. Love the weird dry aspects, sends a shiver down my spine on at least half of my swallows, and that I like.

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden color. Tiny white head as a ring. Leather, sour, bit of yeast and apple jam in aroma. Sweet, fresh green apples, juicy, bit woody taste. Nice dry, but still juicy, woody aftertaste.

Martin243 (1017) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
500 ml bottle from Tesco. Clear amber. Very appley, not too sweet, lighter palate than I expected. I feared it would be cloying, but it was actually refreshing

minutemat (4272) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2013
500ml bottle sipped next to Ludlow Castle. Although reflective of Henney’s usual well-blended quality, this is a little tame for me. A pleasant drink, but lacking in the way tanin.
