Little Earth Project Castlings Heath Cottage Doctor Harvey Cider 8.2% abv

This old East Anglian apple variety dates back to 1629 and was named after Dr. Gabriel Harvey of Cambridge. It is classified as ‘green & sour’ and is generally regarded as a cooking apple; however there is some evidence that historically it was also used to make cider. This, as far as we know, is the only example of a Doctor Harvey single variety Cider. Pressing was in Autumn 2015, and the juice has now spent the last 19 months in an organic single malt whisky barrel. There have been no added ingredients or sulphites to stop the fermentation. The lack of these additions would normally result in a dry/sharp cider - however, and quite unusually, there are still some residual unfermented sugars, meaning that the result is a well-rounded medium cider. Cider maker John worked with his son Tom, from Little Earth Project, to create this lovely balanced barrel-aged cider. Look out for more wild ciders and collaborations.
