Pomme-Oh! is our take on an ancient fortified cider, first recorded in 1684 by Richard Haines as “Cider Royal”, it is much like the delicious Pommeaus made today in the north-west of France.
Pomme-Oh! was created from a blended bittersweet cider, pressed in 2018 and made from apples harvested by hand in the small Herefordshire village of Dilwyn. Following fermentation the cider was aged one year and then distilled using a wood-fired copper still to create a cider spirit in March 2021. After aging the spirit on oak for six months it was carefully blended with a single variety Kingston Black juice which was pressed in November 2020 and had been partially fermented to retain residual sweetness.
The result is a delicate golden orange aperitif, with the poised acidity of Kingston Black balanced perfectly by the sweetness and warmth of the spirit. Serve neat at room temperature or tempered with an ice cube.
