    3Cs vintage cider is made from classic English apple varieties and is pressed and fermented to create a perfect drink for relaxed glugging


It was a bumper year for apples and that means an epic year for cider, according to the food writer and MasterChef critic William Sitwell. ‘Apples love sunshine and 2015 had plenty of it,’ says Sitwell, a co-founder of leading cider brand 3Cs.

‘And while the winter of 2014/15 was mainly benign and we had a cool summer we had many months of sun.’ Sitwell also adds that while orchards where 3Cs cider apples are picked missed the famous floods of that year, ‘their apples,’ he says, ‘were drenched in sunshine’.

So with sweet and bulbous fruit 3Cs, which uses the varieties of Harry Masters and Chisel Jersey, has decided to deckare 2015 as a vintage year. ‘Our cider is dry, but the fruit from 2015 has given it a sweeter edge,’ adds fellow 3Cs cider co-founder, the musician Toby Grafftey-Smith.

The third chap in the 3Cs cider business, Jasper Galloway suggests that a vintage 2015 will be great for business as consumers start to drink it in greater quantities over the summer months of 2016. ‘We like to pick our years in the same way that winemakers bottle wine,’ says interior designer Galloway. ‘2015 3Cs is drinking better than any previous year since we founded our company. It’s a happy time for apples, cider and cider lovers.'
