The trees at Hollow Ash, planted in 2009, are now producing a reasonable crop and this is the first cider made from mainly home grown apples. We have two trees of Sops in Wine which are the largest apple trees in the orchard and are unusual in producing red juice.
Although the red is largely lost in fermentation, the cider retains a rich, dark colour.
