The Bottle Kicking Cider Company – Scrummage 6.5% 20 litre bag in box
As small scale, craft cider makers, they are able to select the finest apples to make what they believe is a great tasting drink. The apples are washed, milled and pressed as soon as they arrive at the farm. The juice is then left to slowly ferment in a carefully controlled environment. The cider sits on the residual yeast for a short time before they “rack off” into large airtight containers, to ensure the cider maintains its freshness. It is then left to mature and develop gradually over the cold winter months.
Following hard on the heels of Scrambler and Rambler, at 6.5% abv, Scrummage has a sharpness that lingers at the back of the palate, reflecting east midlands apple varieties.
