White’s Original Ashcombe Organic Cider

Volume: 500ml

Product description

A delicious, slightly sparkling cider, medium-dry with a crisp apple taste. 4% ABV. Made from apples and nothing else. Ashcombe has a long tradition of making cider. The last professional cider makers were the White family from the late 19th century up until the 1950’s. During World War 2 a soldier returned with White’s Ashcombe Cider for the officer’s mess. The ensuing party was so wild that Ashcombe Cider was officially ‘banned’ in perpetuity by the British Army. Ashcombe cider making was reborn in 2012 the White’s orchards restored and new facilities created. Please don’t tell the M.O.D. This award-winning organic cider is from hand-picked apples in orchards established by the Whites. They don’t over-process their cider so there may be a little sediment in the bottom of the bottle.

Origins

The award-winning organic cider is made from hand-picked apples in the estate orchards. The only ingredients are apples, we sweeten the ciders with our own apple juice not sugar.

The slightly sparkling medium-dry Whites Original, Medium St Nectar and sweeter Gratton's Gold are available from the Ashcombe Ciderworks and selected retailers. We also offer the opportunity to learn about the process from Peter the 'Ashcombe Cidermeister' at the Ciderworks.

Until the 1950's The White Family made great quantities of Ashcombe Cider at the Cider Barn. The orchards were then looked after by Peter Gratton for a further 59 years but were left unharvested for many years, until Ashcombe Cider was reborn in 2012. The only losers were the cows who liked to eat all the uncollected apples.

Whites Original and St Nectar Ciders are 4% ABV, Gratton's Gold is 3.5% ABV
