CUSTARD FAQ

 

WHAT IS CUSTARD & CO CIDER MADE OF?

Apples - what else?! 
Ok, so we do find ourselves making the odd pear cider now and again!

We occasionally have a bit of fun with some limited release ciders which might include throwing in some honey, native botanicals, hops and a whole lotta ruckus.

WHY DOES CUSTARD & CO CIDER TASTE SO DIFFERENT TO OTHER CIDERS?

Custard & Co ciders don't contain ANY concentrates or flavouring - what you're tasting is the real, honest fruit that was used! That can vary from batch to batch, as the produce we're crushing changes slightly from season to season - if the apples are quite crisp and tart tasting, so will the cider be! That's part of what we love about our process - those subtle differences.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAY IT'S WILD YEAST FERMENTED?

When apples grow on trees they build up a layer of natural yeast on the skin. To start the process we juice the apples keeping the wild yeast in the juice which then starts to eat away at the sugars converting them to alcohol. We also don't use any preservatives or additives during this process. This is the most natural way of fermenting fruit, and why our cider tastes like proper apples.

IS YOUR CIDER GLUTEN FREE?

Yes, Custard & Co is gluten free.

IS YOUR CIDER VEGAN?

Yes, Custard & Co is vegan. Many ciders are filtered through pads which include fish or pig skin, but not ours!

DO YOU USE PESTICIDES ON YOUR FRUIT?

We source our produce from local farmers/growers where we know there has been no or minimal use of sprays/sulphites.
