Little Pomona - Hard Rain Hopped #2 - 4% Egremont Russet Ciderkin - 750ml Bottle
4% Egremont Russet Ciderkin
Made with the second pressing of apples with the addition of spring water, this is our modern interpretation of the old historic drink, ciderkin.
Here we used the dessert apple Egremont Russet, spontaneously fermented in tank on top of apple lees. Later on we infused with whole Chinook hops, grown by our friends here at Brook House Farm, before bottle conditioning. Originally from the Pacific North West, Chinook has happily made its home in the Herefordshire countryside. With its grapefruit and pine freshness, it sits beautifully with the bassier baked apple and nutty notes of the Egremont Russet. Combined they make for a breezy, bright glass of fruit, flowers and herbs that could, and possibly should, be crushed all day long!
