Bridge Farms’ five year old Cider Brandy
Bridge Farms’ five year old Cider Brandy Bridge Farm were delighted to be invited by the Somerset Cider Brandy Company to distill some of our prize winning cider to cider brandy. Now after maturing in Limousin oak for Five years it is bottled and ready to be enjoyed. Our cider brandy differs noticeably from other Somerset cider brandy due to the unique terroir, pressing process and the fermentation or the cider prior to distillation. It is in the barrel where the transformation from eua-de-vei to cider brandy takes place. The spirit begins to take the flavour from the oak barrels, some spirit is lost due to evaporation (the angel’s share) and, with time, the brandy takes on tannins, caramel colours, and vanilla notes from this process. This helps to soften the spirit and transform the spirit to our elegant cider brandy, which we feel has an exceptional nose; with notes of morning orchard walks moving through to vanilla and baked apple.
