Somerset cider maker Sheppy’s has launched Redstreak craft cider, to coincide with the start of summer.

Sheppys Red cider

Redstreak is a medium-sweet single variety cider with an abv of 4%. Made with traditional Somerset Redstreak apples, the new cider is described as crisp and light with a refreshing fruity flavour.

Master of cider David Sheppy commented: ‘The Redstreak apple variety is a personal favourite of mine, so being able to introduce our newest cider made with its wonderfully refreshing flavour is a real joy.

“Lower abv innovations are more important than ever to maintain volume growth and keep drinkers interested in cider, which is why we wanted our Redstreak to sit at 4%. It’s perfect for long lazy days in the sun and hopefully for enjoying at summer social occasions in the not too distant future!”

Sheppy’s Redstreak cider can be ordered from the company’s web shop at a trade price of £17.41+VAT for 12 x 500ml bottles.
