It’s been a busy time in the orchards, harvesting this year’s beautiful apples & Winter has crept up on us! Here at Apple County, Winter means our precious fresh juice is brought into the barn. But, it’s far from hibernating! It’s at this point that we add the winemaker’s yeast & it begins its slow, cold, maturing first fermentation process, for a minimum of 6 months.
Every single harvest is different in the life of a cider farm, so whilst next year’s scrumptious ciders are safely bubbling away, we can come in from the orchards and turn our attention to the wintery warmth that our cider can bring. Curling up with a good book, by the fire, with a mug of smooth, comforting mulled cider is something we look forward to every year!
We’ve made up some perfect mulled cider gift sets this Christmas. Available as a ‘Winter Warmer For One’ or a ‘Winter Warmer For Two’, these kits come with our ultra-cool retro-style enamel mug, a 500ml bottle of Apple County cider, all the mulling spices that you need and a recipe card to create the perfect festive indulgence.
Grab a blanket, it’s about to get cosy!
WINTER WARMER FOR ONE
A black & white branded retro enamel mug with a 500ml bottle of cider, mulling spices and recipe card.
WINTER WARMER FOR TWO
Contains two branded retro style enamel mugs, 2 bottles 500ml cider, 2 mulling bags and recipe cards.
RETRO ENAMEL MUGS
We do also have our black & white printed enamel mugs available separately, if you love them as much as we do!
They’re perfect for those fire-side wassails and for cider-loving campers!
At our shop, (in the barn, on the farm) we also stock a range of local produce, including jams, cordials, ales, honey and ice-cream. We love finding (and tasting!) foods that really complement our ciders. With this in mind, we’ve created some gift boxes, with a twist. These boxes are a perfect present for those tricky people – you know the ones – you want to get them something really unique, considered & memorable – but have no idea what! Take a look at our 4 themed boxes, you’ll surely find something to tickle those tastebuds!
