Little Pomona Glad To Be Plaid
Apples: Ellis Bitter, Ashton Bitter, Browns
Susanna and James Forbes of Little Pomona make natural cider from their 120 tree orchard in Thornbury, North Herefordshire. In their own words, their aim is to make cider that "speak of the land, that taste of the harvest, that illustrate the wonderful cider making heritage the region is built on, and that look to the future".
Glad to be Plaid is a sparkling dry cider made in collaboration with Clapton Craft alumni and UK cider evangelist Martyn Goodwin-Sharman. Made from a blend of two barrels - one ex-Cognac and the other ex-Bourbon - it's intensely aromatic with green citrus, peach, mango and exotic spice aromas.
