Made by James & Susanna Forbes, Little Pomona mostly use traditional Herefordshire cider apple varieties in fascinating ways; they take all kinds of influences & love to experiment. Coming from a wine background, they often favour a good acid structure to their ciders, & use a minimal intervention approach, but without going into the realms of dogma. Often ageing for years at a time, & with a fascinating barrel program.
This is intriguing, complex cider making; their bottles are often dry & mature, or lively & young. It shows at an expert level just how far small-batch cider-making can be taken, away from mass-market cider. Selection of 6 includes (those marked with an * are in the set of 3):
To Boldly Go, Who Mourns for Grapes? *
Brut Rosé 2021, Traditional Method Perry
Throne Farm Still Perry 2021
Hard Rain Siegerrebe 2021
Yarlington Mill 2021 *
Wading In 2021 *
All the bottles are subject to availability & vintage change, being made in small batches by bespoke cider makers. Where the advertised bottle or vintage is not available we will substitute it for a similar item.
