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.

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 (5332) - 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 (989) - 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 (3608) - 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.

ALLOVATE (2816) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 2, 2011
Bright, light amber with little evident carbonation. Strong, tangy ripe red apple nose with a lot of core and pip. Rounded and full, good body with a very light spritz. Sweet but controlled, good length of ripe tangy apple. Light woody pip and core, but otherwise clean as a whistle. Very refreshing, Really lifts the palate without being cloying. A simple cider, odd as I’m never quite fond of the sweet ones. (50cL, BBE 12/12, Thirsty Camel, Butler)

adnielsen (10360) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle @ home- fuck if I know where the fuck I got the fucker. Clear, golden orange appearance with a small, yet large bubbly white head. Fairly sweet, red apple pulpy, somewhat juicy aroma. Sweet, red apple juicy, slightly spicy, easy drinking, alcoholic apple juice flavor. Easy drinking but not all that interesting. Apple juice with booze!
