Distillation The firm still have one of the old mobile stills which they use but most is carried out on a Charentais Alembic of a medium size
Flavour Dry apple with a hint of dry sherry, there are some hints of sage and thyme.
Grape Variety Not a Grape but cidre made from apples and perry pear. The bitter/sweet apples are mainly picked and crushed in a membrane press to get the flavour from the skins.
