RIP AA Gill. He adored our apple juice, and called it transformative. He insisted on having it every day right until his last breath, and it relieved his dry throat and need for something tasty when the chemicals treating him made it hard to savour flavours.
Magnificent artisan apple juices. 100% natural. We don’t need to add sugar to our extraordinary juice products – we let the sunshine and the natural sweetness of the fruit speak for itself. Suitable for Vegans and Diabetics.
This is the World Famous Original Bramley Seedling, now in its 204th year, and still producing fruit. But it wont last forever, which is why it’s so extraordinary that John Starkey has ‘copied’ its genes and is producing its ‘grandchildren’. See About Us to learn more about The Original Bramley’s interesting heritage and the work that The Starkeys are doing to preserve it.
The extraordinary thing about John Starkey’s Bramleys is that they can be enjoyed as fruit or as juice without any additional sugar. In this they are as unique as the Original Bramley Seedling. The reason for this is that Sir John’s trees are “granddaughters”, so closely related genetically to the Original Bramley, and like the Original, they grow on their own roots.
The apples are only harvested when they have reached their climacteric of maturity on the tree in October, thus allowing them to develop their own natural sugars to the maximum. The result is an arrestingly fresh juice with a perfect balance of Bramley acidic flavour and sweetness. The juice has a wonderful prolonged after flavour on the palate.
This blend of two of England’s finest apples is the popular favourite. Depending on the season, Sir John Starkey’s juice blends 75-80% Cox with 20-25% Bramley to give a refreshing balance of sweetness and character.
From 2017, the Cox is actually Cox’s Orange Pippin – even more extraordinary!
The first English Apple of the season with a deliciously fresh and sweet flavour, an exciting bright red glossy skin, and about 2 millimetres of pink flesh just under the skin. As an apple, it is at its best for a very short time, but its special flavour can be captured and kept as a juice. The initial attractive pink colouring of the juice tends to fade after a few months, however, the beautifully sweet flavour never does! This is a marvellous mixer for Vodka or Gin.
Our Apple Cider Vinegar is made from 100% fermented apple juice and as it is raw, unfiltered and unpasteurised it contains the ‘mother’. This may appear in the vinegar as white wispy strands or the vinegar may turn cloudy. Many consider this to contain all the good stuff and ACV has many health benefits. It makes the perfect ingredient for your daily detox!
