Castlings Heath Cottage Cider
Pressed in Groton, just 2miles up the road from The Fleece, Castling's Heath Cottage Cider is made by the Mill Green Brewery team. Castling's Heath Cottage Organic Cider is made with 100% natural cider made using only East Anglian organic apples. It is pressed in the cidery at Castling's Heath Cottage. To produce the dry Original, the most traditional method is used. No water or sugar is added to the pressed apples. Fermentation occurs due to the wild yeast naturally present on the skins. This is the real deal; 7 or 8% abv and dry as a bone, with tart, acidic qualities reminiscent of both white wine and the sour lambic beers of Belgium.
The 'Apple Pie' cider is a spiced version of the original. It is considerably weaker at 4.5%, incredibly easy drinking, and real favourite.
Other ciders available include; Elderflower and Strawberry.
