Review:

Pickled Pig is one of a handful of cider producers heralding from Cambridgeshire. The name of the company appears to come due to feeding their pigs the left over cider pulp, which no doubt got them slightly pickled and worse for wear. I’m sure they weren’t complaining though and were far happier than a pig in sh*t!

The Porkers Snout cider is a former National Cider of the Year Bronze winner in 2010, which is understandable as it is a good cider. Though, of course that’s really subjective according to your taste in cider.

From the first taste, it is a fairly sour and tangy cider and had a definite bitter citrus/lemon twist to it. I enjoyed the way it just tingled on your tastebuds and gave that dry kick to finish with. It’s certainly an interesting cider and one I’d love to try again when I get a chance to.
