We had a strong dry cider in our portfolio (Panking Pole 6.2%) but decided to trial a sweeter strong cider. Libertine was born and it is a heady blend of cider apples with their bittersweet and bittersharp tannic notes and a toffee-ish sweetness. It is now infamous walking away with many best in class medals eg Best in Class & Gold Cider World 2020 and 2019; Gold for Libertine & Classic Cider Cup in the biennial International Cider Awards 2019, Gold and Best in Class at Great Lakes (GLINTCAP) in the USA, 2019.
This product won 1 star at Great Taste Awards in 2019. It also won Best in class Award (5 International Awards) in 2019, Gold at The International Cider Awards in 2019, and Gold Cider World Award in 2020, and Gold Cider World Awards in 2021, and Gold Great Lakes Awards in 2019.
