Hallets - Cider, Wales
Just off-dry, this has a lovely lush mouthfeel of fully ripe apples with a thirst quenching and long finish.
Andy Hallett is an award-winning Welsh cider maker based in Caerphilly in Wales. Hallets Real Cider is rare and special resulting from the unique flavours and textures blended to perfection each year.
Hallets Real Cider is made using both the traditional fermentation method, with the addition of juice which is fermented using a rarely applied method called keeving. Keeving is a process borrowed from the Normans and yields a clear sweeter and rich juice. This is blended with oak-aged vintage cider from the previous year to produce a unique Welsh cider which has its own subtle texture and unique taste.
