Merridale uses cider apple varieties that have been proven for centuries in England, France, and Germany to make the best cider. They include cider-specific varieties like Tremlett’s Bitter, Michelin, Yarlington Mill, Dabinett, Chisel Jersey, Kermerien, Julienne, Judaine, Frequin Rouge, and Hauxapfel.
All of ciders are made from 100% pure juice, and only the first pressing is used. They do not add water or re-press the apples. They do not use concentrates, chemicals at bottling, pasteurization, or fine filtration. Juice is fermented slowly and naturally, to delicately bring out all of the flavour the fruit has to offer.
