Pilton

Although Pilton is a really smart and modern looking and tasting cider, the way they make it is an ancient art called keeving. Without wanting to bore the pants off people, this is a process where you crush your apples but don't press them straight away, which is what you would usually do. By leaving them for a day or so pectins are released so that when you ferment the juice, a cap forms at the top of the vat. This restricts the fermentation so slowing it down and preserving some of the natural sweetness. Pilton bottles before this has finished so that the cider has some natural bubbles. If you like Normandy cider then you'll love this. It's now sold at pretty sprauncy establishments around the country like Harvey Nicholls.
