Perry’s Somerset Dabinett Cider

By  •  British

Perry’s cider, the rather confusingly named cider company is famous for their ciders and not so much for their perrys. Since being in the UK, I’ve has the opportunity to try some of Perry limited edition ciders. But today I’m trying one of their more famous blends. Well to call it a blend is a bit of a lie. You see this cider is a single variety cider. Some say the art of cider making is in the blending of different varieties to the makers’ whim. The Somerset Dabinett is made entirely from famous Dabinett cider apples all grown in deepest darkest Somerset.

Hallets Real Cider is the first Welsh cider I’ve reviewed. Hallets is a tiny company making this a bit of a rare breed. Being a small company they embrace seasonality. The flavours change  with the seasons and that is just the beginning of what makes Hallets Real Cider exciting.

Sheppy’s Vintage Reserve 2013

By  •  British

Down in deepest, darkest Somerset, the Sheppy Family started making cider around 200 years ago. In the Great British summer of 2013 that family picked cider apples from the Three Bridges Farm, they then age that young cider in oak barrels. But is it worth the title of Sheppy’s Vintage Reserve 2013?

Real Cider Reviews Best Ciders of 2014

By  •  News

This year Real Cider Reviews has reviewed nearly 50 Ciders and have tasted over 100 different ciders all in the name of research.  So it’s that time of year again. When your favourite TV shows have basically given up for the year and the editors quickly throw together a half-baked collection of the “best bits of the year” instead of actually making something new. Well here at Real Cider Reviews we’re above that. So here is a list of my top 3 Best Ciders of 2014.

Hillbilly Crushed Apple Cider

It’s about time I looked at this Crushed Apple Cider from the Hillbilly folks in the mountains. While this isn’t the first cider i’ve reviewed from Hillbilly, it is their original cider. In fact this was one of the first craft ciders I found in Sydney as I moved away from the big labels into proper ciders. Oddly never got to write a review about it.
