The annual ‘Great Taste’ awards have just taken place and we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been awarded stars for our ciders once again!
We love a good knees-up here at Apple County, especially if it involves a garden, having a boogie, and gorging ourselves on good food and drink….
With the launch of our new bag-in-boxes and some exciting new flavours to boot, we thought that for this blog we’d focus on traditional cider, or ‘Scrumpy’ as it’s sometimes known, and how you can enjoy it this May…
We’re feel very lucky here at Apple County to be living in such a stunning part of the country. If you’re anything like us, now that the longer days have arrived and the sun is shining, you’ll want to be spending as much time as possible outside…
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! Continue reading Winter Warmers In Festive Flavours!
This summer we’re enjoying a little added pure fruit with our cider in Apple County. We were very excited to launch 2 NEW 100% juice fruit ciders which have a drier, more sophisticated real flavour that stays true to the real cider base. And now we have a very special third variant to add into the mix with a short-run initial release. If redcurrant, and gooseberry flavours tickle your fancy, we’ve got a special summer cider treat for you. Both the joyful combination of flavours and the name of this fruit just proved impossible to resist.
Get your laughing gear around our NEW cider with real cider with Chuckleberry. Continue reading NEW Limited Edition Cider to tickle your fancy
We’re celebrating summer, fruit and cider with 3 NEW ciders including very special summer fruit cider…
This is always an exciting time of year in Apple County. After more than 6 months slowly developing and maturing, the cider has mellowed and rounded and is finally ready to drink and enjoy!
A new addition to our cookbook shelf arrived last week. And the most exciting part is that we’re in it! The book is called Food Stories and it is the very first edition of a new seasonal recipe collection celebrating rare food brands. Continue reading Food, Glorious Food Stories
