Rich + Mellow is a medium-dry traditional style cider, made with a variety of sweet, bittersweet and bittersharp apples. It has the depth of flavour and complexity characteristic of cider apples, but isn’t overpowered by tannins so it is well-rounded, smooth and drinkable.

Fruit was gathered by hand from unsprayed trees in Ashleworth, Longney and Corse Lawn in Gloucestershire, and was allowed to ferment from fresh juice using wild yeast.

Chris and Kayleigh tasted this cider at Explorers HQ in June 2020. We found it to be easy to drink, moderately sparkling, with a gentle astringency and a hint of toffee apples.

Bushel + Peck believe strongly in caring for the environment, and among other initiatives support the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
