Born in Bideford in Devon, Sir Richard Grenville was a friend and contemporary of Sir Frances Drake. He achieved lasting fame at the Battle of Flores in 1591. Heavily outnumbered by over 50 Spanish ships, the British fleet retired. All except Sir Richard, commanding the Revenge, who attacked! The battle raged for 15 hours damaging or sinking much of the Spanish fleet. Finally the Revenge, with Sir Grenville mortally wounded, was forced to surrender.
Our Naturally Sweet cider is made using a traditional Devonshire method described by Robert Fraser in 1795. Freshly pressed apple juice is repeatedly racked from the lees, to arrest fermentation, leaving behind some natural sweetness in the cider. No sweetener of any kind is added.
