We recently received the fab news that Saxby’s have won three Great Taste Awards in 2019. Their stunning ciders are gaining in popularity every year with Fetch The Drinks customers and this news comes with little surprise. We stock their Traditional, Original, Cloudy Rhubarb, Plum and Mulled to cover all your festive needs. The Blackcurrant is curretly unavailble but following the below judge’s comments maybe we should bring it in!
Here’s what the judge’s had to say:
🏆 Saxby’s Original Cider: “Bright and clear pale gold cider with a lovely floral and earthy orchard aroma. Plenty of fresh apple in the mouth, well rounded, well balanced between the sweet and the sharp. A well-crafted cider.”
🏆 Saxby’s Plum Cider: “A wonderful garnet colour. This has sweet apple and caramel notes on the nose, and the apples come through on the nose with a well-judged hint of plummy stone fruit on the finish. This tastes honest and clean and bright. A well-made cider.”
🏆 Saxby’s Blackcurrant Cider: “Glorious blackcurrant red with lots of life in those shiny bubbles. Heady blackcurrant on the nose with a refreshing dryness to it. Well balanced sweetness with the tannic dryness making for a very pleasant mouthful with a long fruity finish. Appreciated the use of home grown blackcurrants and these are certainly the hero of the flavours, and well represented in a jolly decent cider.
“We found a pleasing prosecco spritziness with a good combination of blackcurrant and apple happily well balanced by a sharp note at the end. A well-made fruit cider.”
This now means they have won 8 Great Taste Awards since 2017 and are now a Great Taste Producer too!
