Harry’s Somerset Cider is relatively new on the greater Cider scene. Originally a dairy farm with cider orchard, supplying Apple’s to the now log defunct Taunton Cider Co, the family have switched their day job from dairy farmers to cider makers producing the usual range of ‘Dry, Medium and Sweet’ ciders.

Harry’s Original cider is their ‘Dry’ offering. It has a golden colour, more typical of the larger market medium-dry ciders with a fruity apple aroma and a fine champagne fizz. The taste is sweet apples with a dry finish. Certainly more dry tasting than most bottled dry ciders but not as dry as a traditional farmhouse dry.
They do produce a traditional Harry’s farmhouse range, so it would be interesting to try their Farmhouse Dry

Had a good evening at The Quarterdeck in Wells, with a display of Orchard Pig Cider from West Bradley near Glastonbury.
Had a good chat about ciders and brewing and a taster of Orchard Pig Truffler, their bottled dry cider. With a strong apple aroma, this cider is a very pleasant dry cider with a sweeter follow-on.  Learned their medium sweet Reveller will be on draught at The Reeds Arms in Burnham-on-Sea. Look forward to trying their other ciders.
