Everybody say hi to Katy, Windsor and Red Falstaff 👋  – aka the freshest, tastiest British eating apples we can get our mitts on. This lot are sweeter than cider apples. And because each season’s crop produces slightly different flavours, every season our cider is a limited edition, small batch ‘vintage’ that must be tried before it’s gone. Or in other words, better grab a 4-pack on your way home 👌

Man (or woman) cannot live on ready meals alone. So release your inner TV chef and have a bash at this fancy, but easy, sausage casserole. Don’t worry, the recipe only needs 3/4 of a bottle of Friels cider – so there’s plenty left to drink.
