Addlestones

Addlestones is produced by Magners GB at our Shepton Mallet cider mill, in the heart of England’s West Country, where we have been pressing quality cider since 1770.

Addlestones is a naturally cloudy, premium cider, rich and mellow in character. It is full of bittersweet apple fruit flavours, with a smooth, rounded finish. It is made using a unique recipe of locally sourced genuine bittersweet cider apples from Somerset and a double fermentation process which creates the Addlestones full-bodied taste. Addlestones’ cloudiness is caused by the fact that Addlestones is fermented twice, and not filtered at any stage of the process.

History

First produced as a draught cider in 1986, Addlestones Premium Cloudy Cider is now also available in a glass 500ml bottle.

Production / How Addlestones is Made:

  • A bright, golden, naturally cloudy cider with rich, bittersweet apple fruit flavours and a smooth, rounded finish. Addlestones is made using a unique recipe of locally sourced genuine bittersweet cider apples from Somerset and a double fermentation process which creates the Addlestones full-bodied taste.
  • The unique Addlestones cloudiness is caused by the fact that Addlestones is fermented twice, and not filtered at any stage of the process - resulting in the presence of 'live' yeast and natural apple residue in the liquid. Addlestones is a genuine 'live' cider, constantly evolving, developing and shifting.
  • Addlestones is not filtered at any stage of the initial or second fermentation. The live yeast and natural apple residue give Addlestones its distinctive cloudy appearance.
  • Addlestones has a cloudy & pale amber colour with aromas of fresh green apple (and a little bread dough). It is refreshingly sharp, balanced with slight sweetness, creamy mouth feel with slight prickling of light carbonation.
