This was a pleasant drop of cider. Thatcher’s are one of the big name producers in Britain who continue to make cider properly, and so I'm always happy to try their new offerings.
This is a medium sweet cider with the pleasant addition of blood orange that makes for a nice rounded drink. The apples, according to Thatcher’s, that go to make this cider are Braeburn, Fuji and Gala.
Overall, good for anytime but with or without ice it is suited to a warm summer afternoon. — 9 days ago

We popped this British beauty to help celebrate a friends birthday from afar and boy was it a delight to drink.
We were kindly sent this sample bottle from Pommery to help celebrate their first British sparkling wine! They’re the first Champagne house to produce an English fizz and wow, I was impressed!
In fact I’d drink it over a few of the big brand NV Champagnes. That’s how well it went down! At approximately $89 a pop I definitely would expect that.
The grapes 🍇 are grown in Hampshire, Southern England and it’s made from the classic champagne grapes with the majority being Chardonnay. It’s Pommery in style from English terroir.
In the glass it’s a brilliant morning sunshine hue. The nose is super fresh with yellow orchard fruits and citrus however it also made me think of vanilla honey on crumpets. The palate is smooth and perfectly rounded. My oh my it’s divine.
All opinions are my own. Drink what you enjoy! — 2 months ago
Champagne method and blend - 49% Chardonnay, 31% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier. Lifted aromas of almond cake, biscotti, and sea shell. More non fruit than fruit with a almond kringle feel the palate. Lemon zest to finish. Soft and round with loads of acid. Well done. — a day ago
Mum says extremely quaffable.
