First of all, I apologise for the pathetic image, it’s not great, but then when yu pour it into a glass it just looks like cider. You can see a better image here, which also gives Waitrose’s Organic Vintage Cider a pretty rough review. In fact it calls it ‘filth’.
So what did I make of it? I quite liked it. It was drinkable and had a nice apple flavour. It was a bit sweet for my taste, but then I like a good bitter and only have cider in the summer so it takes some getting used to. For around £1.50 I can’t really complain, I like the fact it’s organic compared to mainstream brands and being 5% alcohol by volume it’s not too strong.
The cider is made from a single year’s harvest and pressed in a traditional way. It meets Soil Association standards and fermented and matured in oak vats. You can by it online or instore at Waitrose.
