Michael, our Beer and Cider's buyer's pick of the month is the award-winning artisan cider range from Harry's.
Harry's is an award-winning artisan cider crafted by cidermakers Harry Fry and son Toby on their farm in Somerset. Immensely proud to be part of the farming tradition of growing apples, their goal has always been to make the best authentic cider possible. Selecting top quality fruit, the tastiest varieties of apples, and using traditional methods to ferment and mature their ciders has always been a priority, and all of this appears to have paid off. In 2018, Harry's cider was awarded Supreme British Champion Cider for their single variety Dabinett cider, shortly after winning the CAMRA National Gold Cider Award for their medium farmhouse cider, called Scrummage. Not bad for a former Somerset dairy farmer!
The growing appetite for new ciders has encouraged Harry and Toby to introduce some interesting fruit flavoured ciders for the Bag-in-Box market, which nicely complement the more traditional farmhouse, and lightly sparkling bottled ciders. Delicious on their own, and particularly good when paired with a hearty Somerset cheddar.
