“A cider to celebrate”

Sprywood Cross cider is made with traditional west country apple varieties from our orchards in the Torridge valley, Devon. Produced in small batches, the cider is crafted using the labour-intensive méthode champenoise (the Champagne method), and allowed to mature for five years or more.

Tasting notes: a naturally sparkling dry ‘champagne’ cider with a crisp, clean finish. An ideal accompaniment to seafood dishes or strong cheeses such as Cheddar.

750 ml

7.5% Alc.

Sprywood Cross won Gold (bottle-fermented cider class) in the 2017 British Cider Championships, held at the Royal Bath & West Show.
