Somerset cider makers Sheppy’s are launching their new Low Alcohol Classic Cider at Imbibe Live on July 3.
With only 0.5% ABV, the traditional cider remains true to Sheppy’s cider making heritage and methods, with a lower alcohol content.
Sheppy’s Low Alcohol Classic Cider has all the same flavour profile of their traditional cider. It is made with a carefully selected blend of Somerset’s finest traditional and dessert cider apples.
The new cider has been introduced to meet today’s changing consumer lifestyle choice. Discerning drinkers want to know where their food and drink is from, what’s in it, how it’s made and the heritage and provenance of a brand.
Today, sixth generation master of cider, David Sheppy, is at the helm of this 200-year-old family business.
With over 90 acres of organic cider orchard, some of which are over 100 years old, the Sheppy’s cider farm is where David grows 30 varieties of the finest Somerset cider apples.
He continues to champion the same traditional methods, using rare crafting skills to produce the Sheppy’s range of premium ciders.
David said: “We spotted the growing trend for low alcohol as consumers’ lifestyle choices are changing. People like to enjoy a drink or two but are looking for options with lower alcohol – that still taste great and are made well.
“Our new cider offers all our craft credentials; flavour and excellent quality, with a lower ABV. I have spent a lot of time perfecting this recipe to ensure that it stays true to our traditional craft cider roots.
“The team are thrilled with the result and are looking forward to sharing it with visitors at Imbibe Live!”
