Aspall Cyder has developed a pie in conjunction with Fuller's Ale & Pie pubs as part of its focus on food and cider matching.

The Chicken, Apple and Aspall Cyder pie will be available in 12 of Fuller's 15 Ale & Pie pubs in London, from the end of September for at least six months.

"Fuller's Ale and Pie houses are a perfect fit for Aspall Suffolk Cyder as they reflect the cyder's quality and premium credentials," said Geoff Bradman, Aspall commercial director.

"All our cyders are made from a complex blend of both bitter-sweet and culinary apples and are fermented from fresh-pressed juice and not from concentrate, which gives them their exquisite taste profile.

"This means that our cyders lend themselves particularly well to food matching, both as an ingredient and an accompaniment. The dryness of Aspall Draught Suffolk Cyder beautifully complements the sweetness of the Braeburn apples used in the pie."

Sandra Leupold, executive chef for Fuller's Ale & Pie houses, says: "Aspall was an obvious choice. The Chicken, Apple & Aspall Cyder pie provides the perfect marriage of traditional English produce: a high quality English pie which also uses cyder produced by England's oldest surviving family-owned cyder maker."
