Great Fizzy red

Fab red wine, great taste and so easy to drink. Nice cold or room temp.
Got it before Xmas as they delivered bit to me by express. Thanks for that great service. Much appreciated.

This was bought as a stocking filler for my eldest son - he loves this sauce!
It has not yet been eaten, but I give the service the highest rating - it arrived promptly & I was emailed reassuringly to confirm it was on its way.
I know that my son has told me that this sauce is absolutely superb and different to the usual pasta sauce flavours.

Great product

Love this craft cider. Light easy-going and nice flavour.
Reasonable price
