Solland Farm on the northern edge of Dartmoor has a fascinating history. It was confiscated by Henry VIII and, later, formed part of the endowment used by Queen Elizabeth I to set up Kings College Cambridge. Today, Solland Farm orchards grow the finest traditional cider varieties, Tremletts Bitters, Dabinette and Michelin. We craft our cider in the time-honoured way - our ’new’ cider house is dated 1857! All Solland Farm Cider is made from our own apples and bottled on the farm. (label)

Pours burnt orange and clear with a few bubbles of head. Nose of stewed fermenting apples. Taste is sweet at first with a apple and slight toffee flavour followed by a dry finish.

Bottle shared with Pix. Pours amber with a few suds around the rim. Mild toffee apple aroma. The taste is moderately sweet stewed apple to begin with, with a touch of acetone before a dry finish. Light and refreshing. Pretty good cider.

McNeillR (2233) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Musty apple core notes, impressive for the 5.5% in the glass. Reassuring scrumpy murk to the body, pouring with a surprising amount of carbonation but only slim bubbles settling at the top. Sandwich of refreshment and mulching country cider fermentation, twisting a lot of red apple skin into the palate. Nothing cheap about any aspect of this and the tradition rings through on every sip. Very sticky sweet dry finish, with a moreish hangover. Glad it’s in a 750ml as this it be mighty tidy all round as a Gucci cider. (Followed up by the superior, un-rateable, fruit infused "Sloe and Elderberry Fruit Cider")

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2011
0.75l clear swing-top bottle that shows the red glow of the cider already. Clear, slightly hazy red-golden colour, tiney white bubbles on top. Slightly sparkling, slightly sweet with a punch of tart apple flavours. Very nice indeed.
