Little Pomona On The Beech
Apples: White Beech, Major, 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".
On the Beech is made from the rare White Beech apple blended with Major, a super-rich, sweet spicy apple, and citrusy Browns apples. Aged in a mixture of ex-cognac, white Burgundy and Chianti barrels, it's an intense, concentrated cider with perfumed aromas of ripe peach, honey and lemon blossom.
