Peckhams Moutere Pommeau (375ml Bottle)
A blend of our apple brandy, and bittersweet and bittersharp cider apple juice, aged in oak casks.
To make Pommeau, we ferment apple juice fresh from the press, allow it to mature and then have it distilled into apple brandy. About 12 litres of cider go to make each litre of brandy. The brandy is aged in oak casks until blended with fresh cider apple juice the following harvest. The sweet, brandy-rich Pommeau is then matured in oak for a further six months before bottling.
Sweet. Amber colour. Rich and full bodied, with strong apple brandy notes and a complex flavour profile. Serve as an apéritif, or with cheese at the end of a meal.
Made from fermented apple juice, cider comes in a number of varieties. English cider is dry, with fruity, tannic qualities and low carbonation. This can be found cask-conditioned in England. Normandy is another major cider-producing region, with a sweeter, more effervescent, very complex style. Ciders produced elsewhere are often sweet, simple beverages for mass consumption, though there are some good English-style ciders in North America and Norman-style ciders in Quebec.
