Somerset cidermaker Thatchers is introducing two new canned ciders to its traditional craft cider range.
The range, which includes cans, bag-in-box, and draught ciders, has been given the name Stan’s, in honour of second generation cidermaker, Stan Thatcher.
Two new, gently sparkling ciders, packaged in 330ml cans (rrp £1.99), are named Leaf Twister and Barrel Roller.
Leaf Twister (5% abv) is a medium-dry cider crafted with local bittersweet apples including Somerset Redstreak and Dabinett, reliving the joy of Stan’s orchards. Light gold in colour, Leaf Twister has a delicate fruity-floral aroma with a hint of spice.
Barrel Roller (6%) uses local bittersweet apples including Tremlett’s Bitter and Dabinett for a robust, smooth, cloudy cider. Golden-straw coloured, Barrel Roller is high in smooth tannin fullness.
Three of Thatchers best loved traditional ciders are included in the Stan’s range in both bag-in-box and draught formats for the on-trade:
Trad. (6%) is Stan’s traditional cider. Mellow, naturally hazy and full on flavour.
Cheddar Valley (6%), for those who like their oak-aged cider medium dry.
Big Apple (5%) is a traditional medium dry cider bursting with apple flavours and a depth of character.
