Sheppy's - From Apples To Cocktails. Cider, Only Different

It's Sheppy's - but not as you know it! Sheppy's are already masters of the art of producing award winning traditional premium cider. Now they have teamed up with mixologist, BlackLeaf Events, to create a unique collection of luxury cocktails and long drinks using some of their best known ciders.

The recipes have been designed to show how innovative and creative cider can be. Not just for drinking on its own or for pairing with foods - cider can also be enjoyed as a contemporary cocktail. There are eight creations in the collection featuring Sheppy's multi award winning Oak Matured Vintage, award winning Dabinett Apple, Cider with Raspberry and one of the finest cider's of them all -  Kingston Black - made from a very rare old Somerset apple.
