Broome Farm Blossom (5.5%)

Ross on Wye

A mysterious brown bottle, and a label that is very light on detail, beyond “medium dry still cider”.  It’s a cloudy, golden, colour, and although it’s advertised as still, there are a few tiny bubbles in the glass.

A cider that is refreshing and mellow, yet has a pleasing amount of complexity.
