Somerset cider maker Sheppy’s is launching a new medium-sweet cider called Redstreak.
Made with single variety traditional Somerset Redstreak apples, its 4% ABV “makes it the ideal drink for lazy summer days in the garden” according to the 200-year-old cider family.
In an initiative to give back to front line workers, Sheppy’s is also releasing 1,000 limited-edition bottles of Redstreak where 50p from every sale will be donated to the Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. The rainbow bottles will be available from The House of Cider and its e-shop.
Owner and director, Louisa Sheppy, commented: “Musgrove Park, our local hospital has looked after many Sheppy family members over the years. We have fond memories of the wonderful staff we have met during those times and the quality of care which was given. We recognise that it is time for us all to give something back to the NHS and we are truly delighted to be able to do this with our limited edition cider.”
Sheppy’s Redstreak cider will be available from www.sheppyscider.com/online-shop. (RRP: £29.99 for 12 500ml bottles.)
