The Burghfield Santa’s have sampled a wide range of cider and perry from our good friends at Tutt’s Clump Cider, along with some other local producers, to select the very best for the festival. It’s hard work but someone had to do it!

At 7.3% it’s not for the faint hearted!
A blend of Somerset’s finest ‘bittersweet’ cider apples with the addition of our great Berkshire culinaries. Full of apple ‘nose’, golden in colour and finishes with oak and honey notes. This ‘Rebel’ of a cider is one to behold.
Produced from apples sourced from a very local area. At 6.3%, it’s the younger ‘sibling’ of ‘Rebel’.
