Hush Heath, Jake's Orchard Cider

Hush Heath Jake's Sparkling CiderElegant and sprightly, Jake's Cider has light aromas of cooked and green apple, with a subtle herbal tinge, flavours which continue onto the palate.

Named after the owner's son, Jake's Cider is crafted from Cox, Bramley and Egremont Russell apples from the Hush Heath Estate in Kent.

The green tinge probably comes from the nettle dosage. Thinking of typical English flavours, the guys macerated the nettles into a cordial and added it at the final stage. Now that's inspired!

£13.50, from New Forest Cider Shop, Borough Market; www.hushheath.com
