Hawkes

London, london England

Hawkes Urban Orchard apple cider was conceived in Simon Wright's east London kitchen. Named after Victorian street 'hawkers', specifically the costermonger (apple seller), the idea was to bring true apple selling back to London by way of craft cider making.

Hawkes sources its apples from urban orchards and gardens in London, while giving back a percentage of their profits to support, maintain and create more urban orchards that will supply them with apples. Six trees are needed to establish an orchard.

Their first cider is made exclusively from culinary and dessert apples, collectively known as 'cull' apples. Cull apples are also what the costermongers sold, therefore Hawkes is a true London blend. Culinary apples give the cider a balanced sweetness, acidity and low tannins. Champagne yeasts are used for fermentation to give a fine mousse and delicate palate. The cider is medium-dry and is made from a blend of Bramley, Braeburn, Cox, Jonagold, Ida Red, Gala and Golden Delicious apples. The balance, purity of fruit and crisp thirst-quenching finish of this cider is impressive.
