The mysterious creatures that spend months beavering away in these barrels of pure Kingston Black juice are so difficult to tame that they are banished to their own space almost 500m from the main cidery.

These yeasts (Brettanomyces strains among them) deliver a very special character to the cider that invade their home each autumn.

Sour notes reminiscent of a Spanish Sidra Natural. Unfiltered, enjoyably acetic, this is a proper dry cider, but is far from being austere.
