Two new drinks have been released in the Thatchers Cider Barn range in time for Christmas.

Redwood and Dabinett have joined the selection of special vintage ciders which are made in small batches by the cidermaker in Sandford.

Redwood is blended from a range of bittersweet and culinary apples including Katy, Harry Masters, dabinett and Yarlington mill.

The second cider to be introduced is Dabinett which has made a welcome return after a few years’ break.

Managing director, Martin Thatcher said: “Being able to produce batch ciders with some of our favourite apple varieties of each harvest is a real joy.

“This year Redwood has enabled us to look at new ways of maturing this cider – by infusing with new oak, we have been able to create a rich, intense character.

“The Dabinett apple has long been recognised as an outstanding English cider apple, producing an excellent quality cider.”
