The Heron Valley Apple juice is deliciously smooth, not too sweet, not too sharp, the perfect goldilocks apple juice, it’s almost like you are eating fresh apple crisps. It is made using up to 10 heritage varieties of apples grown and picked from their South Hams orchards. There is an average of 1.3kg of apples pressed that goes into every 750ml bottle, these are immediately pressed to preserve the freshness and flavour. We have paired this with our clothbound Mature Clothbound cheddar, the sweet apple juice great combination with the Quicke’s Mature Clothbound Cheddar, the juxtaposition of sweet apple and savoury mature, helps to bring out the broth notes letting the two sing together in unison on the tongue.
