Halves: Somerset 20 Year Old Cider Brandy

Halves: Somerset 20 Year Old Cider Brandy

Ref: C016

One barrel of Somerset Twenty Year Old will be bottled each year they will be released each year on Apple Day, October 16th .These bottles have been matured in our bond in smalll oak barrels and tenderly looked after for the last 20 years.

The result is a Somerset Cider Brandy which is rich, mellow and smooth.

Distilling apples in England was last recorded in 1678 and was revived by the Somerset Cider Brandy Company in 1987. We acquired the first commercial licence to distil cider to produce brandy in recorded UK history and in October 2010, after a protracted legal battle in Brussels, we won a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) - “appellation contrôlée”.

We mature a 3 Year Old, 5 Year Old,10 Year Old, a single cask Shipwreck, 15 Year Old (Alchemy)and a 20 Year Old Cider Brandy in small oak barrels in our bonded warehouse at Burrow Hill. The barrels are chosen for the qualities and flavours they impart while giving the wonderful golden colour to the brandy which mellows and grows richer with age. The art of distilling is the tradition of blending which has been passed down over the years, not just the apple varieties that go into the cider but the wooden casks and the qualities they give to the brandy. We stop maturing at 20 years as we feel the brandy is the best it will be - any extra years will not add any more to what we feel is at its zenith.

We also produce an aperitif and a digestif, Kingston Black Apple Aperitif(18%) and The Somerset Pomona (20%) as well as an Apple Eau De Vie.
