Posted: 26 November 2015
ciders grow on you. You can kind of imagine you're
drinking cider at a neighborhood pub in western English
cider country. A bottle of Aspall Organic Cyder might
just make one feel like he's making the world a better place
to live in!

Aspall ciders grow on you.
Most of the ciders you're
going to be trying will be mainstream brands, which means,
in my experience, overly dry or overly sweet. Aspall's
versions are balanced. You can kind of imagine
you're drinking cider at a neighborhood pub in western
English cider country.
Like any beer or cider which
has ever been brewed, Aspall Organic Cyder has won awards.
The Great Taste award in 2011, the International Cider
Challenge in 2013, the Cool Brand in 2014/15. Yeah, I
know. Those awards make the brand seem like a joke.
Aspall, more than most, has
the cred to offer an organic cider. Peronelle
Chevallier, the grandmother of the current director and for
Blush was named, was considered a pioneer in the British
organic movement and was a co-founder of the Soil
Association in 1946.
The bottle is slick and the
rustic cider drops go down smoothly. You know you're
not drinking high fructose corn syrup and possibly GMO
fillers from Magners.
