Sea Cider’s Owner Kristen was inspired to create a traditional winter warming cider that embodied all the traditional Wassail characteristics and leant itself to the traditions of wassailing. Wassailing refers to drinking and singing to the health of an orchard. An ancient practice from southern England that’s still performed at Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse today. 
 

'The purpose of wassailing is to awaken the cider apple trees and scare away evil spirits ensuring a good harvest. Wassailing also refers to the tradition of raising a glass with good friends and neighbours in celebration of the season.'

This winter warmer is perfect just as is, or paired with your favourite seasonal dishes. The candied orange peel, caramel apple aromas and flavours, and hints of clove and cinnamon make this perfect for pairing with sausages, sausage meat stuffing, roasted pork, duck and of course turkey. A great fit for all your traditional sides too: garlic mashed potatoes, braised  winter vegetables, and roasted turnips. The spices ensure it’s also ideal with  strong cheeses, apple pie, apple crisp, pumpkin pie and of course Figgy Pudding.

Raise a glass of Wassail to good health, a good harvest, and good cider!

This is a one time, limited release. Taking orders now for early December delivery.
