Discover Craft Cider with Crafty Nectar – Review and Giveaway #89

Craft Cider from Crafty Nectar

The apple is the king of fruits and plays an important part in our culture. Turning it into craft cider is a venerable tradition, complete with a whole slew of rituals, including wassailing. Virtually every farm had an orchard and labourers of yore were often paid in cider. Crafty Nectar are offering my readers the chance to win a discovery box of six craft ciders. No need to scythe a meadow first. Read on to find out more.

In Cornwall, cider runs in the veins. It was the first alcoholic drink I was allowed. I remember feeling very grown up when visiting my uncle as a child and being able to have a glass of sweet woodpecker cider with my meal. Later as a teenager, Cornish scrumpy was the booze of choice: it was a bit rough and ready, but hey, it was great for parties. Thankfully, things have moved on since those days and there is now a burgeoning industry in creating premium craft ciders, both in Cornwall and the rest of the country. 

Crafty Nectar

To this very day, I’d rather drink a good quality cider than wine or beer. Cue Crafty Nectar, a cider subscription club with a difference. It’s the club to belong to if you want to discover exclusive artisan craft ciders. Experts look for juice quality and content and only select those with no concentrates or artificial flavourings. You can choose from 3, 6 or 12 bottles a month and subscribe for one, three, six or twelve months. Your membership will also support small cider producers, which has got to be a good thing in my book.

I was hoping for some tasting notes to help me on my way, but when I unpacked the craft cider box, it was just three lone bottles. Oh well, I thought, I’ll just have to work it out for myself and reached straight for the bottle opener. 

Offer Code

As a bonus, Crafty Nectar are offering my readers a 10% discount on all cider fights and subscription boxes. So if you like a tipple, appreciate a good fermentation and like a bit of variety, then a Crafty Nectar subscription may be for you. Please use code: CRAFTY10 at checkout.

Craft Cider Bottles

Lancombe Rising (5%, 37.5 cl)

Lancombe Rising Craft Cider

This Dorset cider is fermented slowly and matures in the bottle, which results in a natural sparkling drink. Hence Lancombe Rising – geddit? It was dry and sparkling and left the palate feeling clean. It’s a good one to drink with dinner. CT and I shared the bottle as an accompaniment to a hearty lentil bolognese and it went down very well. Lancombe Rising is produced by West Milton Cider Company and it won Supreme Champion in the Royal Bath & West British Cider Championship 2017.

The Rouge (4%, 50 cl)

The Rouge Craft Cider

The red, referred to in the name of this limited edition cider from Colcombe House in Herefordshire, comes from rhubarb and strawberry. I’m particularly interested to try this one as I have a penchant for rhubarb. Rhubarb and strawberry are a classic combination and I can see that it might work well in a cider. I’m looking forward to trying it.

Grey Heron (5.5%, 50cl)

Grey Heron Craft Cider

We also haven’t yet tried the Grey Heron craft cider, but I like the idea that it’s a single orchard origin. It’s hand crafted by Perry’s in Somerset from their own farm apples; the varieties are Redstreak and Dabinett. The sparkling cider is bottled young and according to the label has a sweet fruity taste.

Leftover Cider

If by any chance you have some craft cider you’re not so keen on or are unable to finish, you could try making this almond apple cider cake. It’s a particularly good one. Alternatively this mulled cider is nice and warming on a cold winter’s night.

    I love cider, especially ice cold in the summer as a long drink over ice, and as an accompaniment to barbecue food. Cider always feels lively, and fun, so is perfect for garden entertaining…. Although when I was in my teens we used to drink it every weekend. Nowadays, it is good to try out lots of differing flavours, and enjoy and appreciate the labour of love of the many craft and artisan drinks available now.

    Now here’s a little trick to help you remember:
    If it’s clear and yella’, you’ve got juice there, fella!
    If it’s tangy and brown, you’re in cider town.

    I’ve been off the booze due to pregnancy until last week. Cider was the hardest thing to miss out on when it was the tail end of summer – just one bottle in the sunset. Can’t wait for some nice weather and apple tipple!

    I love a dry cider that actually tastes of apples (or other fruit) rather than the metallic tasting Strongbow, Magners etc that you get on tap in most pubs so tend to look out for smaller breweries or cider festivals in pubs so that I can try different brands.

    I prefer sparkling, light ciders and I also prefer a cider that is not too strong in alcohol too.

    A colleague once said to me: “You can tell who’s been in a RockSoc at uni by the amount of cider they can put away.” And there I was thinking that it was the band shirt that gave it away … However, I did discover cider at Cambridge RockSoc, because I needed a drink I could afford to keep ordering all night so I could carry on rocking out to all that great music. Back then, it was usually Blackthorn. Now my knowledge of different ciders has grown considerably, but I can still often be found drinking cider in rock bars.

    Cider is something I tended to drink a little more regularly when I was younger. However, I still like a glass of a decent cider on a nice hot day.
