New cider for Wales

 Blaengawney Farm, situated high up in the mountains of South Wales, overlooking the Ebbw Valley, is producing a new cider, Hallets Real Cider is made by hand at the farm using a blend of traditional cider apples.

Hallets Real is made using both the traditional fermentation method, plus the addition of juice fermented using a rarely applied method called Keeving.
This produces a sweet rich juice, which is then blended with the traditionally fermented juice from other varieties to produce a unique cider which has its own subtle texture and taste.

Once blended it is matured, then bottled and stored for a minimum of 3 months, which allows a natural conditioning to occur.

Hallets Real Cider is available via Real Beer Box, direct from the farm or via a number of other outlets listed on their website. Alternatively they will be at Blackwood Edwardian Xmas Market this weekend, the  4/5 Dec.
