We are also thrilled to be able to finally stock the infamous ‘Pickled Pig’ cider in bottles. We have been a fan of this cider for ages and always enjoy a few pints (much more can become dangerously disorientating!) if we find a pub that keeps it on draught. It is made in small quantities in Stretham, near Ely, using a mix of culinary, dessert and wild crab apples and is the ultimate sunshine tipple. So with the jet stream finally on its way out and the sun tentatively peering over the horizon, make sure you stock up now to avoid disappointment!
