As I’ve mentioned before I like a drop of cider in the summer and try to have organic as much as I can. When I spotted theis ‘cyder’ on the shelf in the supermarket Waitrose I thought even though it’s winter I’d give it a go.
Aspall Classic Organic Suffolk Cyder is made from feshly pressed English apple juice and has been winning awards since 1728 supposedly. Maybe that’s the brewery, this cider did win something at the 1921 Daily Mail Imperial Fruit Show though – so has been around a while.
At 7% abv its quite strong and from the first sip it tastes like it, but subsequent drinks mean the flavour comes through more. As one would expect it’s very apple tasting and not as gassy as some other ciders which makes it very easy drinking.
Even though it’s winter I still drank it over ice but it doesn’t affect the flavour that much, it still comes through quite strongly.
At a very reasonable £1.87 for a 500ml bottle, Aspall Classic Organic Suffolk Cyder is available from supermarrkets including Waitrose.
