Hogan’s Medium Dry Cider
Fruit forward and well-balanced, the Hogan’s Medium Dry is more tannic than their Draught, and a touch sweeter than their Dry. Full-bodied and satisfying.
Allen Hogan is making excellent ciders and perry in the Three Counties region of England, an area known for making (and drinking) loads of traditional farmhouse cider. He uses cider apples from Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. The apples are pressed and the juice fermented in stainless steel for about four months. The young cider is then filtered and returned to the tanks, for further maturation. When it’s ready – a good cider maker can tell – it’s blended for a balance of tannins, acidity, and sweetness.
