The West of England boasts a terrific heritage in both the breeding of unique fruit varieties and the perfect conditions to achieve the best from them. Cider apples in particular are tied to the area. We draw our vintage bittersweet Harry Masters Jersey apples from a single local orchard.

However, unlike most producers, we do not distill from cider. Our apples are sorted and washed by hand before the entire fruit is gently fermented and painstakingly double distilled. The richness, intensity and depth of flavour that the whole fruit brings with this single variety reflects these beautiful apples, naturally soft in acidity and high in tannins, a complex and wonderful expression.

The result is an eau de vie that brings a soft fleshy underpinning to a blanket of blossom, honey and orchard fruit, an exploration of everything the apple can bring to the distiller.

Matured to perfection in neutral containers we recommend comparing this eau de vie to our mulberry barrel aged version, adding its layers of sweet spice, smoke and tannin to this wonderful example.
