Barbourne Cider – Oak Cask 7.4% 35 pint bag in box
A family run business based in Worcester. Apples are handpicked and pressed from local standard and half standard orchards. They make a range of traditional ciders and Perry’s.
Early in the season they press Foxwhelp with Bulmers Norman, Redstreak and Major with Browns Apple and Harry Masters Jersey with Browns Apple. Later on other varieties ripen such as Lavignee, Brown Snout, White Norman and Kington Black. The Kingston Black is fermented on its own and bottle conditioned later as a single varietal cider. By mid November they are picking and pressing Dabinet, Yarlington Mill, Ashton Brown Jersey and finally Vilberie.
This is a dry fermented and conditioned cider made in freshly emptied Rum and Whiskey casks.
