A dry, lightly sparkling, single varietal cider made with the Kingston Black apple variety.

We’ve taken our much loved single variety Kingston Black cider, filtered, carbonated and bottled for a pleasingly dry sparkling version. Still as gutsy as the original!

DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2008
Bottle from borough market. Alround rating: Very dry acidic green apple charcater, almost like a cooking apple its that dry. A bit over carbonated and perhaops the alcohol is a bit too present, but still a decent drink.

Bottle. Hardcore, rough, cheesy cider. Aged in oak rum barrells, some spirity qualties are obvious, but not as much as the blue cheese and dry acidic appleskin. Really dry and acidic. Hardcore.

Light & fruity with a medium acidity and low dryness. It was available at P’boro fest also on Saturdays in the Thatched Trailer (honest) at Borough Market. Tub @ P’boro, Bottle at the market I prefer the blend to the single varietal.
