Crafty Nectar x Wise Bartender Cider Collab (0.5% ABV)
We call Crafty Nectar 0.5 a 'unicorn' cider. A mythical low-alcohol cider with the all the taste of a full-blooded cider. Produced in the heart of Somerset this premium cider has a fantastic taste and sensational mouth feel. Fresh pressed cider is blended with juicy west country apple juice, to produce a medium sweet zingy cider with no compromise on taste.
This brand new collab between alcohol-free specialist; Wise Bartender and cider producer; Crafty Nectar brought together two great worlds. Crafty Nectar have an award winning portfolio of alcoholic cider and we want to help expand the AF cider category! Together we set out to produce a new Alcohol Cider that offered full flavour and mouth feel. During development it was joked that a premium alcohol free cider was as rare as a unicornwell now its time to believe in unicorns!
How it all started
Business owners Ed (Crafty Nectar) and Tom (Wise Bartender) met on the hockey pitch, playing for Shepton Mallet Hockey Club. Realising they had more in common than a passion for long sticks and hard balls their discussion quickly turned to AF cider. After much discussion whilst running laps of the pitch the vision quickly became a reality after a day of cider developmentthey actually hit on the perfect style on their 4th attempt! The rest of course is historyexcept the unicorn appeared on the label!
