Gently sparkling with a riot of colourful mango and tropical fruit notes ‘Strange Shrew’ is a bittersweet dominant blend, balanced with some tart Foxwhelp.

An Artistraw is a strange old Herefordian dialect word for shrew. Both lovers of language, the word first pricked our ears on a visit to Tom’s relatives who were living in a beautiful wisteria draped, timber framed cottage surrounded by old apple orchards; indeed the very trees that produced Tom’s first vintage way back in 2003 and the home we would later come to rent when we first made the move to this county. Shrews have precious little to do with cider, but for us they speak of a connection to old Herefordshire and in particular of that wild ancient place, where we first fell in love with the art of cider making.

Pair this cider with creamy dishes (obvs).

Does the cider have a use by date?

Unopened and stored in a cool, dry place our cider will be good to drink for around three years  As a general rule, like wine, cider has excellent capacity for ageing.

If the cider has been opened we recommend sealing with a champagne stopper and storing in the fridge for no more than 24 hours.

Is the cider vegan friendly?

Yes, our only ingredient is apples!

Is the cider organic?

We only use organically grown, unsprayed apples in our cider. Due to the number of orchards we care for belonging to other people we are not able to offically certify ourselves organic at this point in time.

Does the cider contain sulphites?

Our cider does not contain sulphites, however our perries contain a trace amount.

I'm local. Can I come and collect my order?

Of course! Please select the local pickup option at the checkout and we look forward to meeting you!
