A long time ago I wrote about Sash, an industrious fella who was making his own cider. Well, it wasn’t just me that liked what he was making, and he now has started a cider making business called ‘Durham Cider’. His premium product is Morning Glory, a wholly natural cider, without added water, sugar or preservatives.
As I couldn’t get to a festival, my parents got me 3 different types of his cider to try – so there will be more reviews to come after this one. I prefer to drink cider chilled or over ice, so this was served straight from the fridge.
A very pretty rose gold colour with a slight haze. Fresh, tart, citrus and berries on the nose. A slightly effervescent feeling in the mouth. Zesty berry flavours followed by a slightly dry apple finish.
Drinking this reminds me of a holiday in Jordan, where hibiscus tea and honey was the recommended cure by the local guide for all that ails you. I cannot claim that this cider has the same medicinal effects, but it is a very enjoyable drink.
