South Hill Cider "Pommeau" 2014
South Hill Pommeau is a blend of Apple Spirits (Eau de Vie) with unfermented and unfiltered apple cider. It is aged for months, over which time it naturally clarifies itself. Then what is siphoned off is a a shining amber liquid of exquisite character. Our Pommeau highlights the rich beauty that is found at the core of high-quality heirloom apples unaffected by any methods other than peaceful passing time. Notice the slightest hints of clove, fresh apples and butterscotch and its non-cloying brightness. Pommeau is enjoyed as an aperitif or digestif. It is excellent with most cheese - especially bleu, or in a rocking chair next to a wood-stove with only a good book and warm light.
