Not your normal conception...
Following a Rugby injury and broken bones in his hand, our Estate Manager and member of the family, Ben was sidelined for 8 weeks.
During an afternoon recovering at home and aimlessly kicking a Rugby ball around outside, Ben suddenly stumbled upon the old Orchard on the Estate and was amazed to see that we actually had apples growing there, we'd been so wrapped up in the planting of the vineyard up until then that the orchard had gone un noticed.
And so we suddenly had the idea to create a cider. We wanted to create something simple and delicious, no fancy fruit flavours, just letting the apples do the talking and so Hardcore Cider was born...
Despite the name this is a very light and refreshing apple cider.
"HARDCORE" Cider came to life, with it's label designed around the humorous antics of the Pheasants, who roam freely around the Estate & have been captured as illustrations. The Pheasants have become the Brand Ambassador for Kenton Park Estate including“Remy" our resident apple thief.
