The Story of Kingston Black 2021
The 2021 growing season was quite rainy, much like the conditions in Kingston Black’s place of origin of Somerset, England. For this variety, ‘21 was an exceptional year and this pommage is perhaps my favorite bottling of Kingston Black, ever.
Rich, textured and dry, this sparkling cider is made from 100% Kingston Black apples grown in our bio intensively managed orchards. This variety is famed for its excellent acid/tannin balance.
