Aspall Isabel's Berry Cider 
Posted: 6 November 2015  Beer Republic 7.0 
Aspall Isabel's Berry Cider from UK Aspall Isabel's Berry is a tribute to the great grandmother of current chairman Barry Chevalier Guild. The cider is created from a blending of some of the 46 types of apples Aspall grows with raspberry and red currant juice added. Not too sweet, not too tart, not artificial tasting. You don't need any more excuses to honor Great Grandma Isabel.                  
Avg price/liter: USD 8.49   ABV %: 3.8 Type: Cider   
       


I liked Aspall from the first time I glanced at it.  The 500 ml bottles look dignified, like a fine wine, and the labeling enhances the appeal. [The bottle is a redesign of one used in the 1920's] They spell cider as cyder, giving the cider an Old World appeal, which should help for this kind of product.          

They have a similar "Since XXXX" story as Brothers with a few key differences.  Their XXXX is 1728, not 1658.  It's not 14 generations, but 8.  The big difference is that this business, as Aspall, has been continuously producing cider in Suffolk at the same location since its founding.         

Aspall Isabel's Berry is a tribute to the great grandmother of current chairman Barry Chevalier Guild.  "Warm, generous, deeply proud of Suffolk," Isabel, we presume, also loved to chug a tasty cider now and again.  The cider is created from a blending of some of the 46 types of apples Aspall grows with raspberry and red currant juice added.     

Not too sweet, not too tart, not artificial tasting.   Those are all words of praise after I drank two bottles of Brothers.          

The cost of the cider (or cyder) remains eminently affordable as well. Tasty cider in cool looking bottles at a price you don't have think too much about? And aren't berries supposed to contain tremendous numbers of antioxidants? You don't need any more excuses to honor Great Grandma Isabel.
