The Showering Cider Mill has been making cider since the dawn of time – well there or thereabouts, so we know a thing or two about it. Tales tell, when our ancestors needed to quench their thirst they would beseech ‘Shepton’, the great God of Cider, to bestow upon them a perfectly balanced, easy-drinking pint, bursting with the sweet tang of finest Somerset apples. Legend has it that Shepton would call forth a whirlwind of ripe russets which he would smash and pulp with his mighty mallet until cider – the sweet nectar of the gods – was created. That’s refreshment nailed, with the minimum of blood sacrifice required
Available in 440ml cans, Mallets Original cider is a medium dry apple, created with the juice of freshly pressed bittersweet cider fruit from Somerset orchards and has an ABV of 5%.
