"The product of some really brilliant blending, this surprising offering is almost in a category of its own, hovering between beer and cider, and beautifully balanced between the two." - Great Taste 2020

'All thine the new wine of desire, the fruit of four lips as they clung, till the hair and eyelids took fire, the foam of a serpentine tongue.' Dolores, the pagan sacred feminine. Our groundbreaking natural merger, combining traditional cider with British hops. Cascade imparts very noticeable pineapple and lychee notes to this smooth drinking, medium, session cider.

Iðunn, the keeper of apples and granter of eternal youthfulness. Idolised in the Poetic Edda Lokasenna - a pagan era goddess. A smooth drinking medium still cider, low in acidity but with a dry mouthfeel imparted from the pressing of specially chosen British bittersweet cider apples. The true taste of the forbidden fruit and a great all year staple that pairs well with food.

Cloaked in a cape of falcon feathers, imbued with blessings of fertility and love, Freya roams the battlefields selecting those chosen from the slain to enter her eternal field - for she is also the goddess of death and war. This dry cider is infused with Summit hops for a month after its standard maturation; applying natural citrus fruit flavours and a bitter mouthfeel.

We are Beard & Sabre - craft, hopped-cidermakers. It is our mission to combine the very best of British cidermaking with brewing to create exciting, unique drinks for independent bars seeking the ultimate point of difference.

We summon our ciders from 100% pressed, heritage variety apples picked and sacrificed on ancient orchards in Shepton Mallet. The cider is fermented using natural yeasts and left to mature for a minimum of two years. Our ciders are imbued with apple juice from the same season's pressing, adding body and flavour rarely found in commercially wrought beverages.

Finally, we infuse specially selected, British grown hops chosen to complement each cider's natural tannin and acidity to create interesting and unique drinks that are completely natural, both respecting British cider's ancient reverence, and honouring the long forgotten gods of cider.
