Regular readers will be aware that my wife, The Cider Correspondent likes her ciders a little on the sweet side. When she picked up a pack of Highbank Orchards ciders she fell in love with the Driver’s Cider. I was very interested in the Proper Cider, guilty as I am of judging books by covers, it looked like a serious proposition. It’s a dry vintage cider and it’s 6%. It is made from their own organic apples in their orchard in County Kilkenny. The cider blasted away any residual reservations I had about fermented apple juice. This stuff is amazing and properly grown up too. I had it with a pork burger but you could drink it on it’s own or I suspect it would go very well with a good cheese board. Highly recommended. I’m now a cider convert!
