Delicious, bubbly, tasty cider of the type despised by real cider twats, but why premier cru? The label makes no mention of it coming from a specific orchard, let alone a special location in an orchard. Do they do a grand cru, I wonder? I’ve just looked at their website and no they don’t.

Dry Premier Cru Suffolk Cyder, 7%, Aspall
This has a lovely clean nose of apples; not a hint of rot or anything nasty. Just lots of fresh fruit and flowery hints there. The palate is rather dry, with good, refreshing acidity and a fine mousse. The fruit really is quite attractive and together with its dryness and bubbles make this a totally refreshing drink. I’d say you could drink pint after pint of this but since a bottle contains 3.5 UK units drinking more than a bottle would have the health and safety nazis after you for binge drinking. If I had another bottle I’d say bollocks to them and enjoy it with great pleasure. Lovely stuff.
