The period between Christmas and the New Year is always a funny one for me. It’s like you party hard for a few days with friends and family, then you get the realisation that you have to work a bit more until you can go let your hair down again. Today was my final working day of the year, so the cider party can now officially begin again for a good few more days! Up first today is the Farm Pressed Sweet Cider from Perry’s

For any regular readers of the blog, you will know I’ve just about tried the whole Perry’s range now, with the Sweet Cider now one of the last few ciders I haven’t tried of theirs! Overall, I’ve had good experiences with Perry’s cider, with the odd exception which isn’t quite to my taste. Everything is done traditionally at Perry’s, with the apples being traditionally pressed and left to ferment in the apples own wild yeasts and then left to mature for at least 6 months.

This cider poured a dull orange colour and had a fair bit of fizz about it, which was only there briefly before settling down to a near standstill. It has a sweet apple aroma about it and tasted fairly sweet (a little like an apple pie), but does have a nice tannin kick at the end of it, with a mild sour dry kick. From what I can tell this feels like it is made from bittersweet apples. This was actually less sweet than I was expecting, which was a good surprise! It’s tasty, it’s exciting and it’s something I will be going back for when I want a cider a little on the sweet side.

Would I buy this again?: Yes
Overall Rating: 8/10
