Paynters Pilgrim Cider

Paynter’s The Pilgrim is one of those ciders that bridges the gap between clean, contemporary ciders made from eating apples, or often apple juice concentrate (think Bulmers, Magners and so on) and the traditional ciders of Europe. While The Pilgrim is a clean cider, it uses traditional cider apples to give a more intense fruit expression. This is also very dry and the lack of residual sugar means The Pilgrim wears it’s acidity on its sleeve. The result is an approachable, yet thoroughly more adult-feeling cider, ideal for drinkers seeking a simple, fruit-forward cider with a bit more complexity and challenge than the usual supermarket offerings.
