Melton Mowbray’s Cidentro Cider House stars on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch

Melton Mowbray cider-maker Cidentro appeared on live TV on August 30 on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch.

From a live video link in Devon, cider expert Gabe Cook – known as The Ciderologist – chose three ciders.

He talked about each – Wild Disco by Nightingale Cider, Table Cider by Little Pomona and Rosé Cider by Cidentro. About Cidentro he said: “This is Cidentro’s rosé-style cider from Leicestershire. Again, not necessarily a classic cider-making area but showcasing how there is this real diversity.”

Gabe told viewers about the new campaign #DiscoverCider which aims to highlight the diversity in cider styles and show that there’s a cider for everyone.

Tasting in the Sunday Brunch studio were presenters Tim and Simon, together with their guest star Joel Dommett.

Hiranthi Cook, founder of Cidentro, said: “Thanks to Gabe, Tim and Simon for having us on the show, it was tremendous fun and we were truly honoured.”

Cidentro’s Rosé is a dry, lightly sparkling, 8.0% ABV rosé cider created from a unique blend of English cider and English pinot noir wine. It’s ideal as an aperitif and pairs beautifully with food. A 75cl bottle costs £9.50. You can order here.
