Somerset Cider Brandy: 5 year old
Traditional, West-Country varieties of apple such as Kingston Black, Dabinett and Stoke Red are used to make this Cider Brandy which is distilled in copper stills and matured in oak barrels.
This beautifully balanced 5 year-old Somerset Cider Brandy is smooth and complex with intriguing spicy aftertastes.
"The nose is fruity, sweet and floral, like spring in the orchards. There is honeysuckle, apple blossom and hawthorn. The taste is full of apple, with delicate white flowers and a clean lingering fruit finish." - The Somerset Cider Brandy Company.
"...“gorgeous, mellow-yet-warming, richly fruited spirit.” - The Telegraph.
