Aspall Demi-Sec Cider

Aspall Demi-Sec Cider contains a combination of eight apple varieties

Founded by Clement Chevallier in 1728, the family-owned and operated Aspall has been producing ciders in a tiny mid-Suffolk hamlet for eight generations, making it the oldest direct-lineage cidery in the United Kingdom.

There are 46 varieties of apples grown on the Aspall estate, and this version is a combination of eight cultivars: 65 percent sweet (Cox’s Orange Pippin, Egremont Russet, Royal Gala), 25 percent sharp (Bramley’s Seedling, Howgate Wonder) and 15 percent bittersweet (Tremlett’s Bitter, Yarlington Mill, Dabinett). The result of this intricate mix is a complex, moderately sweet flavor profile with prominent notes of honey, sour green apple and citrus. Carbonation is low and the cider finishes with a clean, semi-dry aftertaste. The uniquely shaped bottle, with its tall, slender neck, is a throwback to the ones used by the cidery in the 1920s and 1930s.
