Based down in Moutere, Peckham's are crafting some of the best ciders in the world and we think they're definitely worth you checking out.
Peckham’ Cider was created by serial experimenters Alex and Caroline Peckham. Wanting to make some proper cider, they planted a few cider trees back in 2004. Before long they had created a diverse and beautiful cider orchard which continues to evolve.
Once the harvests began, each one different, the extent of the cidermaking possibilities became increasingly apparent and they began to create. Now a decade and a half later, armed with solid experience, the breadth of their creative momentum continues to grow and they are releasing at least one new cider a month.
The diversity and delicacy on display is fantastic and unlike any other ciders currently produced in New Zealand.
Each box contains:
2x Peckham's / Apple Cider 5.9% 330ml can
This is an iteration of the first cider we created in our Nelson cidery, and stems from our quest to create a go-to, medium-dry cider with plenty of character. Zesty and fresh with a touch of apple pie and subtle complexity from some great cider apples.
Peckham's / Orange-a-Tang 5.5% 330ml can
Based on a wild fermented cider aged for a year. Into this cider, we infused the (painstakingly) hand-peeled zest of mandarins, tangelos and oranges grown in our own tiny citrus grove. The result is an off-dry cider that's bursting with orange blossom, sherbet and marmalade.
Peckham's Kingston Medium - 6.9% 330ml can
This medium version of our Kingston Black single variety cider retains some residual sweetness. Slowly fermented over winter and beautifully expresses the spice and vanilla notes that Kingston Black creates in our Southern Hemisphere environment.
Peckham's Perry - 5.7% 330ml can
Our 2021 vintage perry is made from a blend of true perry pears, dessert pears and a few apples from the home orchard. There's a saying "plant pears for your heirs", which is why several years after grafting over to perry pears, we still have a limited crop. We blend these tannin bombs with Taylor's Gold pears and add a few Egremont Russet apples to bring a little acidity to the blend. The result is a smooth, creamy perry with a modest natural sweetness.
Peckham's Elderflower - 5.4% 330ml can
Take a really good cider, infuse it with fresh elderflowers, and you have summer in a glass. Every spring, one of us spends six weeks handpicking wild elderflowers along local Moutere riverbanks to make this fragrant, floral, delicate cider.
Peckham's Boysenberry - 4.9% 330ml can
Proper tree ripened apples, local boysenberries bought direct from the grower and… nothing else. This ain’t no lolly water! Slow, wild fermentation of Jonagold apples, together with a year long maturation, have created a cider that’s fruity and bright. Add whole, aromatic Riwaka Choice boysenberries (yes we are specific about the berry variety we use), and the result is a delicious cider oozing with berry fragrance.
Ciderkin - 4.2% 330ml Can
This is our take on Ciderkin, the lower alcohol cider drunk by the gallon in decades past. Our aim was a low alcohol cider with plenty of body and flavour. While pressing the cider apples, we removed some of the free-run juice, replacing this with water and macerating overnight for good tannin extraction. After fermentation and maturation, we blended this with a robust, barrel aged cider. We hope you'll agree that the result is pretty damn good.
Rolling Lemon - 4.8% 330ml Can
A soft, zingy summer cider infused with the (painstakingly) hand-peeled zest of lemons grown in our tiny citrus grove. Part of our ongoing experimentation in matching our true cider apples with other fruits and herbs we grow, this is an off-dry, easy drinking cider full of aromatic thyme, pine resin and citrus.Perry Brut - 7% 330ml Can
A soft, zingy summer cider infused with the (painstakingly) hand-peeled zest of lemons grown in our tiny citrus grove. Part of our ongoing experimentation in matching our true cider apples with other fruits and herbs we grow, this is an off-dry, easy drinking cider full of aromatic thyme, pine resin and citrus.
Kingston Dry - 7.5% 330ml Can
This bone dry cider was slowly fermented over winter and beautifully expresses the spice and vanilla notes that Kingston Black creates in our Southern Hemisphere environment.
Farmhouse - 5.6% 330ml Can
The 2021 vintage of our Farmhouse is a wild fermented blend of super tasty, bittersweet and bittersharp cider apples, aged in French oak. A naturally complex, full bodied cider with subtle farmhouse notes, ripe fruit and a mellow sweetness contained by a soft tannic finish.
