Thistly Cross Cider (7.2% Sparkling)
Available in 500ml bottles.
NOTE: Although named as "Thistly Cross Original Cider 7.2% (Sparkling)" on the producer’s website, the word "Original" does not appear on the bottle labels. Also note that the bottle labels do not clearly indicate whether it is the Still or Sparkling version (which are different).
Our 7.2% Farmhouse Cider is smooth, refreshing and Thistly Cross’ first born. It’s a classic, farmhouse cider made with a blend of Scottish apples. The 6 month maturation makes it refreshing, smooth & fruity.
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.
