Cider & Perry List - St Neots 2021

For St Neots 'Booze on the Ouse' 2021, we plan to serve approximately 6 real ciders and perrys over the course of the festival. The range will mainly be sourced from local producers which are located within around 30 miles of the festival.

Sponsor a box of cider! We are inviting companies, pubs and individuals to sponsor a cask of beer or a box of cider. The cost of this is £35 per cask/box and you will receive 2 free entry tickets and 2 free souvenir festival glasses and £10 worth of beer tokens. If you are interested, you can select which beer/cider you would like to sponsor - this will be on a first come first served basis. Names of companies, pubs or individuals will then be displayed on the product they are sponsoring. You are welcome to bring along advertising flyers etc. to put on the tables. Please contact ku.gro.armac.stnuh@pihsrosnops if you would like to sponsor a cask or if you have any questions

The following ciders and perries have been ordered. Please note that this list is subject to change prior to the festival.


Camrose Cider - Bish Bash Bosh (5.8%) Buckden, Cambs - Sponsored by Smiling Grape
Style: Dry - Notes: Around 40% dessert and cooking apples collected from gardens around Buckden. Blended with traditional bittersweet cider apples mainly Dabinett, Chisel Jersey and a touch of Browns. The result is dry yet mellow cider light in colour, clean on the tongue and very drinkable.

Camrose Cider - Luvvly Jubbly (5.8%) Buckden, Cambs - Sponsored by [Available to sponsor]
Style: Medium Dry - Notes: This medium dry cider is about 25% local fruit blended with the classic bittersweet apples Yarlington Mill plus some Dabinett and Tremlitts bitter, giving it body and depth with undertones often described as caramel or toffee apple.

Cromwell Cider - Cavalier Perry (6.1%) Hemingford Grey, Cambs - Sponsored by Huntingdonshire Wildlife Trust
Style: Medium - Notes: Made from Conference and Comice pears that are allowed to fully ripen on the tree to produce a light and bright medium perry.

Cromwell Cider - Oliver's Sweetheart (6.2%) Hemingford Grey, Cambs - Sponsored by King of The Belgians, Hartford
Style: Medium Sweet - Notes: Very simular to Oliver's Choice, cider with a residual sparkle and distinct apple flavour, but as the name suggests, a little sweeter.

Spinney Abbey - Dirty Habit (4.0%) Ely, Cambs - Sponsored by Varina Howell (Membership Secretary)
Style: Sweet - Notes: A lesser strength tipple, sweet and easy on the taste buds.

Spinney Abbey - Fruity Friar (4.0%) Ely, Cambs - Sponsored by [Available to sponsor]
