Thatchers Single Variety Katy Cider Review

Thatchers Single Variety Katy Cider This single variety Somerset cider from Thatchers was recommended to me by my good friend Steve (@steveprentice) from Somerset Whisky Blog.

First time I've had a single variety cider and not sure what to expect but I'm going to give it a bash anyway.

This is surprisingly drinkable and not as sweet or dry as I was expecting, the nose is appley, the palate less so. I really prefer much more sweet appley ciders to this but it's definitely an interesting drink and one I would try again.

I purchased this in a local supermarket, but it is also available directly from the Thatchers online shop

Tasting Notes & Details


Appley, I want to,describe it as something other than that but I get apples and lots of them, it's not bitter like Bramley or super sweet or sugary, but just lots of Apple notes.


I don't get a huge Apple note here more Apple skin and gentle bitter Apple notes, not sweet or at least not overly, very easy to drink and quite mouth watering.


Slightly drying a hint of sweetness there also though.
