Ty Gwyn Medium Dabinett Welsh Cider
I have been meaning to try Ty Gwyn for a while now, it seems to be one of those emerging Welsh cidermakers like Gwynt y Ddraig who are making exciting and interesting ciders. If you think about it it is sort of surprising that Wales isn’t more famous for its ciders. Something to do with methodism I guess.
But I digress…
Dabinett is a great cider apple and perfect as a building block for a crisp, middle of the road cider. Its simle, refreshing and has a little bit of bite. Its a mid yellow, clear and slightly fizzy.
The bottle is simple and the typography is very beautiful. The cider is a reasonably solid 6% and has a good bit of tannin after the crisp first bite.
My flatmate Manishta much preferred it to thesmokyKingston Black I was drinking the other day. It is certainly lighter in character and more accessible. Though I take the scrumpy every time, Ty Gwyn Medium Dabinet is a good solid medium cider and well worth a try.
