Sainsbury’s English Vintage Cider
Available in 750ml bottles from Sainsbury’s supermarkets.
NOTE: Not to be confused with the 6.0% "Taste the Difference" version which is sold in 500ml bottles and is a different product.
Medium dry. Full rich cider apple fruit style with a touch of refreshing astringency.
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.
