OR… if you he favours cider then look no further than The Special Cider Company. Their cider is made from 100% apple juice using British Apples. This cider was originally created for the Cider House at Quatt and was a still drink. It has now evolved and because of its popularity The Special Cider Company was born. Since 2016, the cider now comes in bottles and is a semi-sparkling drink which is sweet in flavour. Their gift packs are the perfect gift for those Cider fans.
