Aspall's Harry Sparrow Cyder

Launched earlier this year, Aspall’s Harry Sparrow cyder, is named after an Aspall’s cyder house legend who spent over 50 years at the family producer. “It’s a tribute to a remarkable man and the many years of dedication to his craft,” says eighth generation cidermaker, Henry Chevallier Guild.

Aspall Harry SparrowIn another nod to the past, Aspalls has upped the percentage of bittersweet apples in the recipe, including well-known varieties like Kingston Black and Tremletts Bitters.

Henry says that Aspalls found that, contrary to what one might expect, these typically West Country varieties had been grown in the family orchards in the past. And they are likely to bloom again. Over the last few years, “new” varieties have been trialled, and if they work out, these will be planted in larger plots in the near future.
