From the makers: ‘Old Man & the Bee is the annual tribute to our beautiful home orchard and the magnificent fruit it bestows upon us each year. The 2020 season was particularly rewarding. We dodged the early frosts and, with a lengthy warm summer followed by a mild autumn, we harvested well-rounded fruit with appealing acidity and mature tannins.’

The cider has the deep colour of golden syrup, with particularly captivating aromas of barbecued pineapple, combined with fresh sage. On the palate, the Dabinett apple contributes sweet nectarine and apricot notes, spiked with cloves. The Harry Masters Jersey adds tannin and notes of Mirabelle plum. The cider undergoes an eleven- month maturation in older ex-white Burgundy barrels which lends an additional touch of richness and spice.

All in all, much like the finest ciders, this is a succulent, juicy delight, and pairs excellently with really quite a wide range of foods. Try it with spice, where aromatic/ slightly sweet wine, would normally fit the bill. It also has a particular affinity for salt, cheese, and protein – croquettes or arancini, anyone?

Each apple is hand-picked and hand-selected. The fruit is aged in small crates until the balance of acid, sugar and tannin is just right, before milling and pressing commences. The high-quality fruit and natural yeasts do the work from there. The ciders ferment slowly, often aged in old oak barrels and can be left to mature for months, or even years.

Founded by Susanna and James Forbes in 2014; they began in their dream orchard in Thornbury, North Herefordshire, with 120 trees with four classic apple varieties. They embarked on a quest from there to focus on a wider range of traditional varieties, the best quality fruit and using natural methods to fashion ciders and perries with complexity and purity. Their aim was to make ciders with the character and structure to match food, ciders for all seasons, and ciders worthy of celebrating with. They now achieve this so consistently across a brilliantly wide range of styles. Try any Pomona cider and you won't be disappointed.
