Windvane, Farmhouse Draught, Smooth. 5%, 500ml


A modern expression of a traditional farmhouse draught made from both keeved and non keeved ciders comprising approximately 50% dessert and culinary apples and 50% bittersweet and sharp cider apples.This results in a smooth and well-rounded cider, rich and fruity with just the right balance of tannins, acidity and ripe Autumn apple notes. This cider is a farmhouse draught so it’s low in carbonation as it traditionally would have been served flat out of the barrel. There’s an image of a Windvane on the bottle and this is the Windvane from Mark’s house and it’s the quintessential symbol of a farmhouse.Windvane goes well with fish, poultry and pork as well as Thai and oriental dishes and it’s great for cooking.
