Get inspired by the traditional apple drink enjoyed by generations of West Country Wassail revellers with the new cider from the Thatchers Cider Barn range.
Thatchers Spiced Apple Cider is a traditional apple cider infused with the flavour of warming spices, creating a smooth, rich, full flavoured cider.
Crafted from a blend of British bittersweet apples from their West Country orchards including Dabinett and Tremlett’s Bitter, the taste of cinnamon, cloves and ginger bring a sweet and warming character to this 4.0% Somerset cider, balanced with spicy citrus notes.
“Spiced Apple has been inspired by the traditional style of rich, round, warming cider enjoyed by generations at West Country Wassail ceremonies. Apple and cinnamon is a classic combination, and there’s good reason for that – the fruity sweetness and spice balance perfectly,” says Head Cider Maker Richard Johnson.
The Wassail is a traditional ceremony held in January that sees revellers celebrate the orchards and bless the trees for a healthy crop of apples that year. Mulled, spicy cider was traditionally served to help keep out the winter cold.
This cider can be served chilled but try adding a splash of rum and warming through for a delicious mulled cider.
