Somerset Shipwrecked Cider Brandy 8 Years Old
Somerset Cider resides at the bottom of Burrow Hill and have been producing award winning cider for over 200 years. With over 40 varieties of apples covering the 180 acres, the family decided to get into the brandy game. In 1989 they were granted a cider brandy distilling license, the first license of its kind in the uk.
The story of Somerset Shipwrecked Cider Brandy 8 Years Old comes from when the SS Napoli was wrecked on Devon shores. A number of Allier oak casks washed up, and farmer-distiller Julian Temperley claimed them as his own and filled them with his spirit.
