Valentine's Day is nearly upon us and here at Crafty Nectar, we’re big romantics.
However, we think valentine's day gift giving has lost its originality. Forget last minute flowers, wine, chocolates, or worse – cuddly toys, instead surprise your loved one with something different, such as the gift of cider. Because no one ever got brownie points for unoriginality.
Here’s our guide for the top cider gifts for both men and women (because cider isn't just for him!)
Enjoy the cider gifts for her this valentines day
1) FINE CIDER BOX - CHAMPAGNE STYLE CIDER
It’s time for Cider to take center stage and our fine cider box is just the ticket. This box is bursting with flavor and has some of the top cider makers in the world.
The cider makers work in small batches making the finest quality cider so this is very limited edition stuff....made with wild & indigenous yeasts using the ancient art of Keeving, which produces a very slow, full-flavored fermentation From the Bath & West winner Lanscombe Rising in Dorset to masterpieces from Pilton cider company in Somerset.
We work with cider makers who work in small batches of the finest quality cider. That is 100% juice with no additives and preservatives.
