Visiting the makers

tasting at Gregg’s Pit

While at Gregg’s Pit, we were privileged to taste some of the latest vintage direct from the tanks. We tasted a beautiful dry perry that won 1st prize at the Putley trials just the week before. As well as a keeved cider - a blend of Yarlington Mill & Dabinett cider apples - that was about a week away from going in the bottle. Later in the day we then tried a bottle of the previous vintage of this same cider. After entering the bottle it becomes sparkling, and with it’s slight retained sweetness and moussy texture, it is a truly beautiful cider. Rich, sumptuous and so wonderfully full of life.
