Look away now… this is a Secret Orchard limited edition of just 400 litres. We harvested the apples from orchards on two privately owned castle estates in the Scottish Borders. To protect the owners’ privacy, we promised not to reveal exactly where. Suffice it to say, these apples have had a privileged upbringing. Using Champagne yeast in oak barrels, we fermented each crop out fully to produce two very dry, very clear ciders. Then we blended them with a little pure apple juice from the same two estates to round-out the flavour, pasteurising the blend so that touch of sweetness wouldn’t be removed by secondary fermentation. The result: a dry 6% abv still cider with a refreshing, almost citrus tanginess.
