Gwatkin Yarlington Mill Cider

Gwatkin Yarlington Mill Cider Thanks to my good friend Andy (@andysinc41) for the pint sample of this Gwatkin Yarlington Mill Cider.

This is another example of single variety apple cider, with the red and yellow Yarlington Mill apples, which originated in Somerset but are grown all over now.

This is seriously dangerously drinkable, and nice and sweet which is just to my liking, lots of lovely juicy cloudy Apple juice flavours which make it feel very gentle despite the 7.6% abv

I'm really enjoying these farmhouse style ciders, and need to pick up some more from Gwatkins if this is the quality they are producing.

Thanks again to Andy (@andysinc41) for the sample.


It's that proper farmhouse cider note of crushed apples, with that core/seed note, along with a hint of farmyard hay, a hint of sour malt vinegar, then sweet and tangy cloudy Apple juice ... Enticing nose this.

Oh that's seriously drinkable, cloudy Apple juice, there's lots of sweetness and a slight tangy hint also, very very easy to drink, lovely stuff

Sweet and tangy, with lovely juicy appley notes.
