Special Reserve: Matured for longer on oak with good dry finish and great character. Crone’s Organic Cider is a traditional cider made from a blend of dessert apples, cookers, and cider apples. Using only organic fruit and without the use of chemicals or concentrates. The freshly pressed apple juice is fermented with the natural yeasts and the resulting cider is matured and allowed to clear naturally without the use of finings making Crone’s organic cider suitable for Vegans. The only thing we add is a small amount of unrefined demerara sugar.

The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
November 2016 - Bottle share at Theydon’s High Wycombe Tasting. Thanks Strokey! As ’Crone’s Special Reserve’, 7.4%. Translucent orange with no lasting head. Aroma is dental rinse, sugary, dried apple peel. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is drying apple, dental rinse, oaky, lightly smokey, very and a little phenolic. Weird – quite medicinal and dry - but enjoyable too. (3.4)

jjsint (2899) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2016
750ml bottle from Bacchanalia in Cambridge, drunk at home. Yellow-gold, clear, thin and still. Almost looks like mead. Aroma is funky and woody with apples and turpentine thrown in. Dry, sour/sweet, woody and so what medicinal taste. Long sourish finish. Lots and lots of oak in the aftertaste. A bit of a mess but I like it anyway.
