Our Ciders

Current Batches

Terrible Shepherd

Style: Medium Sweet, Real Cider.
Strength: 6.9% ABV.
Year: 2018.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.
A shepherd strength mix of Dabinet and Michelin from Quarry Farm at Battle, with Cox, Spartan and Bramley from Little Shepherds, along with all number of varieties from Terrible Down. Picked late in the autumn sunshine. We’d almost missed the cider fruit: we got it so late it was pretty soft and pulpy. Yet it’s still gives a rich tannin depth and mouth feel to balance a clean acidity, the whole thing rounded off by an interesting smokiness. Naturally clear, uncarbonated, unpasteurised, wild fermented and slow matured.

Discrace

Style: Medium, Real Cider.
Strength: 6.9% ABV.
Year: 2018.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.
Our good friend Mick Scrace bought an abandoned orchard of 3000 neglected trees by accident. Through battle with the undergrowth and thinning of dense tangled branches, this fabulous little corner of Sussex is fast coming back into production. His windfall cookers provide the acid tones to all our Eastern Counties style ciders. Blended here with Cox apples from Orchard Farm for a pleasingly smooth green appleyness, softened with mellow spice tones. Naturally clear, uncarbonated, unpasteurised, wild fermented and slow matured.

Spartan

Style: Dry, Real Cider.
Strength: 6.7% ABV.
Year: 2018.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.
At seasons end, we collected a final load of cider apples from Quarry Farm near Battle. They were soft and pulpy - we lost as many as we pressed. Despite frustration, the resulting rich umber colours promise all the tannin fullness you’d expect from Dabinett and Michelin apples balanced with some of Mick Scrace’s cookers for acidity and Spartan for sweetness. Naturally clear, uncarbonated, unpasteurised, wild fermented and slow matured.

Oakhaisy

Style: Dry, Real Cider.
Strength: 6.7% ABV.
Year: 2015.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.

We pressed a batch of cider and dessert apples from Cockhaise Mill Farm back in 2015 and come the summer, well, it hadn’t had enough time yet. So we poured it into old oak barrels and let it sit. The result shows that sometimes patience is the most important ingredient. Bursting with deep rich tannins over a fresh acidic base, the apple tones balance beautifully with the oak.

Green Man

Green Man 2018 

Style: Medium, Real Cider.
Strength: 6.5% ABV.
Year: 2018.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.

We took John O Prince, and Spartans from Greenway Farm just down the road and mixed them with Cookers from Mick Scrace’s reclaimed orchard. The result is a light, clean,  green appley cider that has softened delightfully with age. 

 

A bit of OMFF

 

Style: Medium, Real Cider.
Strength: 7% ABV.
Year: 2018.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.

A hodgepodge of apples swapped for cider from orchards and gardens around the village. Picked and pressed with friends. We've no idea which varieties go in to this, yet every year OMFF echo's previous batches.  Smooth, full flavoured with clean acid tones: our signature cider. Dedicated to our children; Oscar, Margot, Felix and Freddie.

 

Last Pear

 

Style: Medium, Real Perry.
Strength: 6.8% ABV.
Year: 2018.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.

Dom and Cassie found two ancient pear trees among their apples: the last of their kind. Hard to pick, hard to press but exploding with juice. We blended them with conference pears and left them for even longer than usual. We’ll take cuttings from those trees and hope for more.

 

Bonnie Prince

 

Style: Medium Sweet, Real Cider.
Strength: 7.5% ABV.
Year: 2018.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.

A fiesty batch this. The fermentation went on and on and when the sun shone it blew the lid right off the tank. A mix of John O Prince, Breaburn and Spartan from Greenway Farm and Scrace Cookers have produced a strong, refreshing crisp green cider with notes of Granny Smith sweet and sharp. 

 

Cockhaisy

 

Style: Dry, Real Cider.
Strength: 6.8% ABV.
Year: 2018.
Attributes: Certified Gluten Free, Unfiltered, Unfined, Vegan, Vegetarian.
Allergens: Sulphites.

We took cider apples from the back orchard at Cockhaise Mill Farm and blended them with eaters to give a pleasing dry with plenty of complex notes. After the picking we picnicked with Roger and Cathy and friends from the Cider Club right on the edge of the Bluebell Railway while steam trains whistled by.
