Looking for the Perfect Sweet Wine Alternative for Summer? Try Biddenden’s Latest Release

Biddenden Ice Cider 2021 – an innovative cider made by winemakers

In time for brighter Summer days, Biddenden Cider has launched its Ice Cider 2021, an intense, sweet, Ice Cider bursting with aromas and reflecting the best characteristics from Kentish grown Egremont Russet and Bramley apples.

The longer days and lighter evenings are the perfect opportunity to pop open a bottle of this new must-have aperitif and share with friends. Hosting an al fresco dinner party or have a garden picnic coming up? Make sure you have a bottle of Biddenden Ice Cider proudly on the table to impress guests or popped in the picnic hamper to enjoy with cheese and charcuterie.

Biddenden Ice Cider 2021 has an ABV of 9% and is made from only the best locally grown apples which are hand-picked and pressed on site at Biddenden within 12 hours. The high natural sugar content, concentrated aromas, and enhancement of acidity and tannins is achieved through freezing the pressed apple juice and following a process known as cryoconcentration. The liquor is then fermented like a sweet wine for four months before developing further in the bottle resulting in clean, fresh and fruity flavours.

Serving suggestions:

With its incredible versatility, Biddenden Ice Cider 2021 is the ideal drink for those wanting something a little different. This uniquely refreshing and fruity ice cider can be served chilled as an aperitif alongside puddings or cheese, providing the perfect accompaniment for summer socialising. Try also adding it to a variety of cocktails to bring the quintessential taste of Kentish apples to the flair and pizzazz of mixology, or long with sparkling water and a slice of crisp, green apple.

 Made by winemakers:

Whilst Biddenden Cider and Biddenden Wines are two separate ranges, experience from both have been drawn into the making of Biddenden Ice Cider, making it the perfect alternative for sweet wine lovers. Brand new for this year, the new Ice Cider draws on 40 years of cidermaking experience by the Barnes family, including grandparents Richard and Joyce to Julian and sons who are continuing today. The third generation, Tom Barnes, brings a sweet tooth and passion for the complexity of sweet wines and ice cider to the table.

Biddenden Ice Cider 2021 is a perfect gift for the discerning cider buff and followers of dessert wines. It is competitively priced at £12.90 per 50cl bottle, has a natural cork finish and is presented in an elegant “Flute” bottle. It is also available in cases of 12 x 50cl bottles.

The new Biddenden Ice Cider 2021 can be purchased from Biddenden Vineyards’ website from the 30th April 2022 here:
