Oliver's Fine Cider - Five Friends Still
- Style: Still Bone Dry Fine Cider
- Region: Herefordshire
- ABV: 6.8%
- Bottle Size: 330ml
A fully dry, yet accessible cider, fit for any table! It is a blend of five renowned traditional cider apple varieties: Kingston Black (a bittersharp - 60%), Michelin (a soft bittersweet - 16%), Yarlington Mill & Dabinett (both bittersweets - 9%), & finally Foxwhelp (a sharp - 4%).
A bright, copper-gold cider. On the nose: sweet & spicy notes. On the palate: prickly volatiles keep the fruit fresh, & the barrel & smoke emerge to give a full mouthfeel. Slight sourness plus an expected astringency & bitterness keep this very moreish. Fermented with wild yeasts & matured both in tanks & barrels.
