We adore this cider hamper and it is the perfect gift for a 50th birthday because it comes with a story.

It is a gift that allows you to introduce something new to your special recipient on their birthday, because the cider is made using the same techniques as Champagne!

In the Craft Cider Tasting Hamper, the cider lover in your life will find a full bottle of Tinston Anatomy Sparkling Cider, made from 100% freshly-pressed Bramley apple juice. The cider is truly nurtured with two rounds of fermentation and a process of in-bottle on-the-lees ageing for 12 to 24 months, which adds layers of complexity and flavour to create a true stand-out cider.

There is also a hamper full of British made products, including crackers, cheese, relish and award-winning charcuterie. All selected to draw out the flavours of this wonderfully unique cider.

Let's hope he shares some!
