COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Farmhouse Cider

Malvern Oak Dry Reserve is a refreshing, balanced cider made from a variety of traditional cider apples, including Yarlington Mill, Harry MasterÕs 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.

Tillington Hills: This was a pleasant surprise! (The Co-Op label doesn’t do it any favours) It smells great, tastes immediately dry, follows with fairly fresh sour apples. Possibly a slighty over clean, weak appearance in the glass but don’t be fooled by this wolf, decent abv, quality english cider, would definately recommend!

I’m buying this as Tillington Hills at CO-OP in the UK and for me it is the greatest Cider in the world. I don’t claim to be an expert but I have had a good go at whats on offer at the English Cider Centre at Middle Farm and I prefer this. I can’t speak for everyone but when I imagine drinking a nice cider this is the taste I imagine. The only reason I’m not giving it 20 overall is that you never know what will happen later in life. One 750 ml bottle gives you a really quality buzz as well, so definitely not one to drink and drive.
