All of a sudden it hit me like a champagne cork to the gentleman's area! While perusing my local Majestic, I stumbled across a rather gorgeous little craft cider that's perfect for days like these.
In the depths of Somerset lies a farm by the name of Orchard Pig. Started in 2004 by two friends, Orchard Pig produces a range of ciders and other apple-centric beverages from the fruit of their own farm.
The juicy miracle I speak of today is Orchard Pig Reveller. Golden in colour, it has aromas of freshly baked apple pies with hints of cinnamon. Judging from the nose alone I suspected this to be a rich and hefty number. Imagine my surprise when I lifted the glass to my mouth to discover a delicately spritzy texture with lashings of bitter-sweet apples and a little citrus twist to round it all off. Elegant, juicy and full of finesse, serve this porky gem chilled, but not overly chilled, to really appreciate it's depth of flavour.
Now here's the twist in the tail (wahey!), a case of 12 bottles is currently on offer at Majestic
So there you have it folks, the perfect solution to this unexpected weather at a wallet-friendly price.
