Traditional East Anglian & Suffolk Cider courtesy of the Little Earth brewing team.
An ongoing project for Little Earth, Head Brewer and Founder Tom Norton’s dad has been making ciders since the 1980’s in the family garden shed, to this result.
Given the locale of Little Earth and their wild raison d’être, it only seems to make sense that they would turn their hands to cider making. Although the beer is the mainstay (and if you haven’t tried any, then you really should) Little Earth also produce their take on the cider category.
‘Traditional East Anglian Cider has always been made from sweet and sharp apples. We have been making this cider for over 30 years and over this time, our methods have changed very little. We’ve only ever used one simple ingredient – organic apples. These are pressed in the autumn, put into wooden whisky barrels and allowed to ferment, using only the wild yeasts present on the apple skins. When the fermentation has finished we are left with a fresh, dry and slightly sharp cider which, after continuing to mature over the winter months in barrels, also takes on some interesting oak characteristics.‘
With characteristics of saisons and Normandy ciders with oakey undertones and nuanced funk, this is one to investigate on our cider list.Buy Little Earth Project Cider & Mead from Distant Lands
