John Harris from Ciderpunk.com described the ciders and perries produced by Mike at Broome Farm as being:
Masterpieces of blending. Unlike most producers, walking into Mike’s cellar you’ll be presented with the names of the apples used for each barrel, and generally they’ll be different each time you go. Sometimes he has as little as a single barrel of a particular blend.
Mike has a fantastic palate and really enjoys discussing flavours with his customers. One of the pioneering ranges he has produced is a set of bottled single-varietal ciders, along with blending notes, so his customers can mix the precise blend they like for themselves.
