Pilton Tamoshanta

Day 1 - Pilton Tamoshanta

Based in the cider heartland of Somerset, Pilton make an exciting range of whole juice ciders.

Their core ingredients are the bittersweet cider apples that are grow in traditional orchards around the parish of Pilton. These use the artisan method of keeving to transform the juice from this full flavoured fruit into unique naturally sweet ciders. 

Finally, they weave in different yeasts, other fruits and barrel aging techniques to create a variety of small batch drinks.

Tamoshanta is a fruity keeved cider, partially fermented in oak barrels.

Keeving and initial fermentation takes place in large vats but on Burns Night the young cider is transferred to Scotch whisky barrels to finish and mature.

Medium sweet with smokey vanilla tannin, Tamoshanta is great served chilled, with Somerset Cheddar.
