Pilton Cider - Matt's Bike, islay barrel aged keeved cider medium dry, 5.5% ABV, 750ml.
Six month smokey barrel aged keeved cider.
This batch of keeved cider was spotted as being something different way back in the winter of 2020. With complex fruit and delicate balance it stood out as being worth particular attention to become a special product. It was first left to ferment with a succession of wild yeasts in tank for six months, then transferred to delicately smoked second-use whisky barrels for the same amount of time.
A briny sea blast through the smouldering embers of an orchard peat fire. Confident rounded tannins, soft delicate fruity sweetness and mature acidity on the finish.
Blended by Matt.
