STAN’S CHEDDAR VALLEYABV 6% | Matured, medium dry
A real product of the landscape, Cheddar Valley cider is distinctively orange and cloudy in character, it’s chock-full of apple flavours like Tremlett’s Bitter and Dabinett. Blended to grandfather Stan’s own recipe. Great for putting the world to rights with a friend or two – or maybe a complete stranger. Stan did love a chat.
Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs. Gluten free. Contains sulphites for freshness.
Stan’s Cheddar Valley is a robust medium dry cloudy cider. The blend of full-bodied Dabinett and Tremlett’s Bitter, classic west country cider making varieties, produce a still, rich farmhouse-style drink.
Making cider is like making wine, because the soil and climate affect the flavour of the apples. Luckily Myrtle Farm is in a perfect spot, nestled in the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Goes Well With…
Stan’s Cheddar Valley is the perfect partner for meat or vegetarian pies, or of course, bar snacks. Goes well with a nice Cider and Apple Pie too. But best of all, try it with a nice chunk of real Cheddar cheese.
Now, this is a real family favourite. Perfect when there’s a chill in the air, bonfire night, or Christmas parties.
