Abel M̩thode Cider is made by us in small quantities, crafted from 100% apples and pears. We hand harvest tree ripened fruit, crush it, then ferment until dry. This is quite different from your usual cider as we ferment the skins, stalks, pips and all, to maximize fruit aromatics and flavour.
Our cider is unfined and unfiltered. This basically means we allow our cider to naturally clarify via gravity to retain character.
Our cider is fermented in bottle, like champagne. This natural carbonation gives a finer bubble which retains the aromas and flavours. Bottle fermentation adds complexity and texture, as well as giving cloudiness from the natural yeast sediment that remains.
Our cider is dry as this is the way we like to drink it - refreshing and full of flavour!
