Made using the finest apples
To state the obvious cider is made from apples but did you know that the law allows cider to be made with a minimum of 35% apple juice. So legally you are allowed to add up to 65% water. At Halfpenny Green Cider we only make our cider from 100% apple juice with no added water, colourings and flavours.
We have a small orchard of cider apple trees and buy in specialist apples from cider apple growers to supplement our harvest. We press all the apples ourselves and all are hand sorted to ensure only the very best make it into our cider. The apples are blended to ensure the juice has the correct characteristics we are looking for such as tanning levels, PH and sugar content prior to fermentation.
From the outset our mission was to make the finest cider possible. This means a long slow fermentation followed by months of maturation in stainless steel tanks, no plastic! to allow the flavours to develop and the cider to mellow. After maturation we at Halfpenny Green Cider take the art of cider making a step further and transform the dry still cider into a variety of sparkling style ciders using tried and trusted methods. We are also pushing the boundaries and experimenting with methods of our own to produce new styles of cider never before available commercially
