OneJuice collaboration - single bottle
This is Hogan's bottle conditioned cider made for the One Juice collaborative adventure with Ross Cider, Pilton Cider, Olivers Cider and Little Pomona.
Pear drops and hard candy on the nose, with a green and savoury touch of pear skin in the background. All wild and juicy on the palate, with pear, pineapple, treacle sweetness.
So our take on the OneJuice project was to pasteurise the cider apple juice (80/20 Dabinett/Browns) to remove the wild yeast and then ferment with a pure culture of Brettanomyces in tank. Once fermentation was complete, the cider was filtered and bottled with Champagne yeast and a small amount of sugar for conditioning. Bottle conditioned. Enjoy and savour!
