A regular at farmers’ markets. Laprig is now well known for its fine apple drinks in single variety apple juice. They also do winter warmer blends with a difference, all apple based. Laprig Valley’s Bramley juice won a GFF 1* and the Golden Delicious is shortlisted for the Great British Food Non Alcoholic drink category this year. Two more great single varietals from Laprig.
They have planted many of their own apple trees and only ever use additional apples from the UK and in season. Tart apples can give crisp aperitifs; sweeter apples appeal to some and mellow flavours to others – it is fascinating how many delightful flavours there are among apple varietals when they are treated with the repsect they deserve and sold as single species.
Fruit varietals are increasingly popular to match with dishes and enjoy in cocktails – non alcoholic and absolutely delicious.
