We ordered one bottle of Heron Valley Cider to try and it arrived today so we made a tasting video to share our reaction on opening the bottle and trying some of the cider.
None of this ‘serve over ice’ rubbish…. We make our award winning cider in an entirely natural and honest way, using local Devon Cider apples, many from ancient orchards, pressed in our hydraulic press through Acacia boards and cloth, and then allowed to ferment and mature naturally using the wild yeasts present on the skins of the apples. No added yeasts, water or sulphites, just pure Devon cider apple juice fermented and nothing else.
and yet the label says that it’s only 6% and lists as an ingredient, “organic cane sugar” so there’s a bit of an anomoly there.
The cider was clean tasting, fruity and sharp but perhaps not quite dry enough for my preference, but I could easily drink a pint of it in one go, and then maybe another.
So we ordered a whole bag-in-box of the Heron Valley Dry cider and made another tasting video when it arrived.
Excellent cider and all made with 100% organci cider apples, and no added sulphites. There are some people would have you believe that it’s impossible to grow apples organically on any scale, and that making cider without using sulphite is a horrible gamble, but fortunately the good people at Heron Valley Cider aren’t listening to any of them.
One box of Heron Valley Dry cider cost £35 delivery included so that works out at £3.50 a litre which is less than £2 a pint for some of the best natural cider you can buy anywhere.
