GILLY - BRIGHT, RIPE AND JUICY (12x330ml cans)


GILLY  |  bright, ripe & juicy

Like a posh wine, this is a Limited Release fine-apple single-variety cider. You won't believe the totally tropical taste of Gilly - like a walk on the white sands of paradise found!  Packs in a boatload of honeydew melon, pineapple and grapefruit for a totally new cider experience. All from one Somerset-born cider apple!  

The Gilly apple was created at the Long Ashton Research Station, just outside Bristol.  This was a programme to create new apple varieties to: extend the harvesting season, naturally create disease-resistant fruit; and create heavy cropping varieties.  This programme created a number of new apples between 1985 and 2003.  The 29 new varieties are known as ‘The Girls’ as they were named after the ladies who worked there, hence ‘Gilly’

This limited edition cider is medium-dry, coupled with bright acidity and melon notes.
