Gold Rush #5 is the 5th transatlantic cider making collaboration, this time between Tom Oliver (of Oliver’s Cider and Perry) and Ryan Burk of Angry Orchard, New York, USA.

A full tasting, sparkling 6.5% cider with some residual sweetness, balancing acidity and full-bodied tannins. Carefully selected vintage bittersweet and sharp cider apples from traditional Herefordshire orchards were slow fermented by wild yeasts in old oak barrels and tanks then, after a malolactic fermentation in the spring Tom and Ryan came together on 3 separate occasions in Herefordshire to blend this bright, rich cider with an ‘apple skins’ nose that gives way to a robust taste with a very satisfying finish. Chill and savour this unique cider with family and friends and celebrate the “family of cidermakers” on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world.
