Celtic Marches is a family firm that’s been growing apples for seven generations on 200 acres of Herefordshire countryside. They produce more types of cider than most, and that includes a good range of 0.5% drinks.

It’s a traditional farm cider, unlike a lot of the very sweet ciders on the market today. It’s lively but not too fizzy, with a good apple flavour. Fans of old-school English ciders should be more than happy with it. It’s miles ahead of the supermarket own-brand low-alcohol ciders, and offers a decent challenge to Sheppy’s and Stowford Press.

The Holly GoLightly name is a clever pun, and the drink originally featured an image of Audrey Hepburn from the 1961 classic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. With more and more brewers are moving away from putting pretty girls on bottles, the new graphic pattern of blue apples seems more appropriate.
