Amber Valley Festival Cider List 2019

Welcome to the Cider & Perry bar.

All the ciders and perries we will stock are “Real” in the sense that they consist principally of fermented apple or pear juice respectively, however some will be flavoured with other fruits. We will have three local ciders, the rest come from two of the main cider and perry producing counties, Herefordshire and Somerset, plus the ever popular Black Dragon from Gwynt y Ddraig. The ciders / perries are not artificially carbonated of served under gas pressure. This means that the majority are still, although because they contain live yeast the residual fermentation may produce a slight sparkle. They may be clear or hazy in appearance, but not seriously opaque!

The tub labels will be colour coded green for cider and yellow for perry. They will have been sampled and categorized as Very Dry, Dry, Medium Dry, Medium, Medium Sweet, Sweet or Very Sweet. Admittedly this is a bit subjective but it should help when ordering, bearing in mind that most commercially produced ciders are medium sweet or sweet. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to discuss the ciders with you and to give small tastes provided the bar is not too busy.

Soft drinks will be available, free when added as mixers to cider or for designated drivers and a range of crisps and snacks.
