Willie Smith | Bone Dry Apple Cider
A traditional English cider - but from Tassie.
Or when the New World meets the Old World of cidermaking. This old English-style apple cider was fermented twice for extra dryness, a softer mouth feel and complexity. It aged in oak for up to 3 months delivering body, tannin and a smooth clean finish. We like the dry acidity and bigger can format (440ml).
William Smith moved to the Huon Valley on the "Apple Isle" 4 generations ago in the quest for the perfect apple growing conditions. He was one of the original orchardists and the trees he planted are still growing today! The Smith family have maintained this passion for their craft and continue the search for the perfect apple. The farm went organic in 1997 thanks to the innovation of current orchadist, Andrew Smith, who is constantly revolutionising the cider world and testing new ageing methods. His last invention: cider ageing in whisky oak barrels... At Fizztopia, we are big fans!
