There was once a great czar in Russia named Rudolph the Red. He stood looking out the windows of is palace one day while his wife, the Czarina Katerina, sat nearby knitting. He turned to her and said, "Look my dear, it has begun to rain!" Without even looking up from her knitting she replied, "It's too cold to rain. It must be sleeting." The Czar shook his head and said, "I am the Czar of all the Russias, and Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

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 👌
