About this deal

This South-East Asian inspired cider has been specially crafted to be enjoyed with Asian foods. Using a blend of culinary apples to create a balance between sweetness and tartness, it pairs well with rich foods and chilli. Bittersweet apples have been included in the mix too, to complement meat-based dishes, allowing a spectrum of spices to shine across Asian cuisine. With an ABV of 4.8% and a taste of luscious, fresh apples in each moreish mouthful, this is a crisp, clear and uncomplicated cider to enjoy with your favourite Asian meal. We tried it with a Pakistani lamb dish, but it would also be the perfect accompaniment to a Pad Thai or Katsu Curry. Made from 100 % organic Normandy cider apples (5 varieties) grown and harvested near the Chateau de Sassy. Recommended by Milton Keynes Assist Mgr and my word absolutely fabulous! So much flavour.a Tad sweet ? Best served well chilled. Light on alcohol . Just lovely!


A subtle and well-balanced semi-dry organic cider. A fruity hit with notes of « terroir » in the front of the mouth, giving a reminder of the Norman origins of the product. It goes perfectly with soft pasta, cheese and white meats. Kopparberg, it is not real cider. It’s more like hard seltzer than a cider,” Xavier complained. At the same time he recognises that though much of what people drink isn’t great quality, the cider market in Britain is ten times the size of France. Low apple ciders “make cider popular. It’s not a good product, but people like it,” he admits. The family owned Biddenden estate in Kent was originally a 40-acre apple orchard, before the family pivoted to winemaking in the 1960’s. Biddenden’s wines have gone from strength to strength, but the estate’s cider production is also noteworthy. Made using the traditional method of fermentation as used for Champagne and Biddenden’s sparkling wine, its range of vintage ciders are always a treat. This 2018 vintage is a dry, fruity and sophisticated cider made using a blend of Kentish Cox and Bramley apples that give a delightful sweetness and freshness. This is a cider with which to toast an event, or enjoy as an early evening aperitif. Also available in a smart presentation box, why not give it as a gift to the cider-lover in your life?Don't wait in!

He describes production as “very artisan.” He uses fruit from trees planted in loam soils which apparently creates a “nice acidity” with low yields, they only plant 150 trees per hectare compared with the normal 600, and he waits eight years for the trees to mature before using the apples. The ciders are made from a combination of his own orchards and bought-in fruit from ten local farmers.

If cider has a problem in France with its old man image, then Britain has it far worse. Say cider and many will think of tramps or teenagers in parks. In the UK, cider only has to contain 35% apple juice compared with 80% in France. Sassy is made from 100% whole fruit, and yet it is in the same category as Kopparberg.Apple varieties can give a good sense to the eventual taste of a cider, and many ciders will label themselves as ‘dry’, ‘medium sweet’ or somewhere along the spectrum. Region affects taste, too, with many West Country ciders being made in the traditional way, with cloudy or still styles remaining popular and ABV% increasing significantly. Today, cider is made all over the UK by farmers, winemakers and breweries alike, so there are plenty of options to explore. How much should I spend? Sassy by name and sassy by nature; this handcrafted rosé cider certainly lives up to its moniker. It has been lovingly created by a pair of young Frenchmen – childhood friends Xavier d’Audiffret Pasquier and Pierre-Emmanuel Racine-Jourden – who were keen to revolutionise what is not only their favourite beverage but also Normandy’s most famous export. Employing the expertise of a cellar master with more than 30 years’ experience they have succeeded in giving ‘cidre’ a very modern twist. Special Delivery Requests?
