HEWLETTS MILL STONE BROKE CIDER launched June 2019
We are very excited to announce that our first batch of cider from the 2018 autumn apple harvest has just been delivered from the bottling plant…..And it is SO good!!
Hewletts Mill Stone Broke Cider is light bright and refreshing with a lovely burst of crisp green apple flavour and a very pleasing balance of sweetness, acidity and gentle tannin…. Try it you will love it!
Guy makes our Cider by blending and fermenting the juice from three carefully selected varieties of traditional local Somerset bitter sweet cider apples; Yarlington Mill, Harry Masters Jersey and Dabinett. The varieties are selected for the complexity of flavour and character they bring to the cider, but local provenance is also an important factor.
Yarlington Mill, as local as it can get… originating from Yarlington Mill which is about a mile further up the little river Cam above Hewletts Mill. A wonderful bittersweet variety first found as a “gribble” growing out of a wall in the mill tail race channel by Edward Bartlett the miller in the late 19th Century and developed commercially by Harry Masters, a Cider apple nurseryman from the adjacent village of Woolston.
Harry Masters Jersey, another lovely local bittersweet variety raised in the village of Woolston alongside the more well known Yarlington Mill Apple.
Dabinett, a popular and highly esteemed bitter sweet variety. All Dabinett apples originate from a seedling found in the 19th Century by William Dabinett in the nearby village of East Lambrook.
Hewletts Mill Stone Broke Cider is available at £33.60 for a case of 12 50cl bottles
