Farmhouse Cider

Malvern Oak Dry Reserve is a refreshing, balanced cider made from a variety of traditional cider apples, including Yarlington Mill, Harry MasterŐs Jersey, Dabinett and Kingston Black.
With the help of ’mother nature’, Malvern Oak is fermented to 6% alcohol to encapture the full flavour of the wine of the orchards, differing from many other ciders due to our unique blend of bittersweet cider apple varieties.
Malvern Oak Dry Reserve should be served slightly chilled – a great companion to good food or sipped from a glass whilst lazing in the shade.
This natural product is made without the use of apple concentrate, or any artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners.

MichaelAwesome (6471) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Teasco, Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Wonderful nose filled with honey, apples and some cereals. Bit too low in the carbo. Very dry ending combined with a semisweet taste full of apples and some honey. Really easy to drink and very pleasing in the end. Thumbs up.
