Breakwells Seedling is a pretty rare apple discovered in Monmouth, a little town on the Welsh border, a little over a century ago. Dunkerton’s orchards just so happen to have a few of these trees and used them to make the Dunkertons Breakwells Seedling Cider.
The year is 1980 in Herefordshire, England. Susie and Ivor are new arrives to the area. There is one major cider maker in town. The husband and wife duo saw an opportunity, at that moment Dunkerton’s Cider was born. Dunkerton’s Dry Organic Cider is one of their flagship ciders.
Day 3 of my UK Cider Tour starts outs fine. I rolled out of Monmouth on my preplanned route. I did my research and planned to ride on quiet roads and bike paths. Today’s bike path is more of a walking trail with lots of gates along the way. It ends far too quickly.
