Like our sister company, Hobsons Brewery, we are dedicated to producing the finest quality local cider using the best ingredients.
Our splendid ciders are made entirely from freshly pressed apples picked from orchards in and around Geoff Thompson's farm at Oldfields in the Teme Valley near Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire. Geoff, who has also been supplying hops to Hobsons for around 20 years, works closely with the brewers to make ciders which are clean, bright, and full of fresh apple flavour.
This limited edition cider is made with Discovery apples, a dessert variety, and is light, crisp, refreshing and packed full of Discovery apple flavour. As it is made at Oldfields, tastes of apple and is dry (or secco) in style Oldfields have called it Applesecco.
Oldfields medium dry cider combines natural freshly cut apple flavour with gentle tannins from the skins and pips giving a wonderfully tingly mouthfeel. Very quaffable, it is a great accompaniment to spicy food.
Oldfields award-winning medium sweet cider is packed full of natural apple flavour and fruity sweetness. When Oldfields say 'sweet' they mean sweet-ish because it's well balanced and not too sugary or syrupy. Balance is important too, it has gentle acidity and a little tannin from the apple pips and skins.
Oldfields original cider is based on the original recipe of the Oldfields draught cider, in fact it's even from the same tank! Bottled cider is never quite the same as in keg but Oldfields think this comes pretty close.
