The barren wilderness of dry January has passed, so it must be time to sell the first cider of 2019 🙂

In 2018 we sold out six months early which was spectacular. It did mean we were left with several months with nothing to sell however. The wait is now over and the first of our new seasons ciders is finally ready.

About time, waiting was never my strong suit and I need a cider!

Breakwell's Seedling Single Variety

Breakwell's Seedling Single Variety

Breakwell's Seedling is an old Monmouthshire cider apple variety. It's an early season, light and fruity bittersharp apple variety.

We grow it in our own orchard in Llanblethian as well as purchase it from traditional old orchards around Monmouth.

The resultant cider is light, fruity and with a sharp apple kick. Perfect served chilled with cheese. We are supplying it as sweet or medium in 20L bibs as well as sweet and sparkling in 30L kegs.

First cider of 2019 - First sales of 2019

On Tuesday the Cellar Door Newport is being presented with CAMRA best cider pub in Wales and we will be supplying our Breakwell’s Seedling. Well done Paul!

On Thursday and friday the Cardiff Students Union Real Ale Society -a society I was on the founding committee of in ’97 – is hosting their annual beer festival in the Great Hall, Student’s Union, Park place.

We are supplying our Breakwell’s Seedling in medium and sweet together with some very special kegs of Barnocalypse and Whiskey Tango Foxwhelp that were kept back from 2018.

Our Breakwells are also making their way out to the Hopbunker, Cathays Beer House and the Andrew Buchan in Cardiff as well. All brilliant pubs, well worth a visit.

So hopefully that will cover your ciders needs for now. We will have more of our new season ciders coming on sale late February / early March.

If I can finally sell the rest of the Breakwells I can make some room to set up the Whiskey Barrels I bought to do some more barrel aged cider 😉

If you want to find out where we usually sell our cider here is a list of our usual stockists.
