Belvoir English Apple Pressé review

As we'll be visiting family over Christmas and New Year, we've already cracked open our Christmas hamper and have been sampling some of the lovely goodies inside, including this bottle of Belvoir Fruit Farm's English Apple Pressé.

It comes in a glass bottle, making it seem a bit more special than the normal fruit juices in plastic bottles or Tetrapak cartons filling the supermarket shelves. It has the cloudy appearance of proper fresh apple juice so I couldn't wait to give it a try. We popped it in the frdge to chill and settled down to enjoy it at the weekend.

When I poured some into the first glass, I did a doubletake when I saw the bubbles and thought "oh no, it's fermented and gone off" ! Luckily, I checked the label before throwing it away though ! It's actually a blend of English Discovery and Cox apple juices and lightly sparkling Belvoir Spring water. This got a mixed reaction - Pierre and Juliette didn't like the fizz at all but it didn't put me and Sophie off, although we would have preferred a non sparkling option. It has a lovely crisp, natural, apple flavour that is very refreshing and the extra bubbles could make this a nice alternative to alcoholic fizz over Christmas and New Year for those who don't want to drink.

It's a high-quality product that manages to retain a "homemade" feel and it doesn't contain any artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners. Belvoir have a whole host of other products on offer, including cordials and stills, so I'll look out for some of their other products to see what we think of those.
