Little Pomona Hard Rain Hot Pink 2020
Little Pomona is a cidery based in Herefordshire and run by James and Susanna Forbes. They use traditional apple varieties and low intervention methods to produce their lively and delicious ciders.
Hard Rain, made from the second pressing of apples with the addition of spring water, is an interpretation of an old historic drink, ciderkin. It can also be thought of as upcycling pomace.
Hard Rain Hot Pink is about as English a drink as it gets. They combined a ciderkin made from a wonderful, super ripe, classic apple variety called Egremont Russet with a little Somerset blackcurrant wine made by a great friend Martin at Pilton Cider in Shepton Mallet.
Naturally sparkling, it strikes a joyous balance between the apples and blackcurrants, and with its wonderful colour, zippy core of red berry fruit and fleshy, creamy, apple tart flavours it’s something to both intrigue and crush at the same time!
