Both hubby and I are fans of good, refreshing cider during the summer months. There's something about the crisp, appley flavours that scream sunshine.... even if the rain can't stay away.
We have just been introduced to Wyld Wood; a traditional premium cider brand that I had not yet had the privilege of tasting.
This deliciously refreshing cider is produced from fruit sourced in Herefordshire’s organic orchards the brand's emphasis is very much on its organic and rural origin - which we like...a lot.
It's fully matured in old oak vats, giving the cider a fabulous appley aroma and full-body – it's been describes as, "a true celebration of nature in a glass", and I'd have to agree.
A spokeman said, "Westons has produced organic cider for over 15 years and Wyld Wood is a brand that comes straight from the heart of our values. It illustrates our deep and on-going passion for good quality cider and our respect for nature and wildlife."
Formally known as Premium Organic, Wyld Wood was re-branded in 2011. I love the Wyld Wood's values and I honestly enjoy something more when I feel connected with the brand. I must admit, I'd never seen cider as a particularly 'feminine' drink, but I have to say, Wyld Wood feels quite sophisticated to me. We have been taste-testing Wyld Wood Still Cider in a box as well as some of their gorgeous bottles of slightly sparkling cider.
So far we have been enjoying the still cider with friends and family; on it's own as a refreshing, long ice-cold drink after a very hot and busy day but after seeing some amazing recipes on the Weston's website, I fully intend to cook with Wyld Wood very soon! (I will blog this, of course!)
The bottled variety feels a little more 'special' as it has a very subtle fizz - a lovely alternative to a glass of wine. It still has that beautifully crisp apple flavour but the bubbles gives it a different dimension to the still variety.
Wyld Wood is available nationwide and you are able to buy it in a variety of supermarkets and independent stores across the country, including Waitrose, Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsburys. Or you can order all your Wyld Wood goodies from their online shop.
We really enjoy it and I can't wait to get cooking with the cider too. I can just imagine how delicious my kitchen is going to smell! Mmmmm!!
