Gleneagles was delighted to support the regeneration of their local Carse O'Gowrie orchard which supplies the apples in all of their cider. Throughout December this drink will be served at the hotel and £1 for each cider sold is donated to the Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust and Perthshire Big Tree Country. Here they share their original recipe which can be made hot and chilled as well as non-alcoholic if readers wish.
This will keep in the fridge for up to three days and can simply be reheated and served when required, it's also delicious chilled and served over ice. For a non-alcoholic alternative, replace cider with one litre of good quality cloudy fresh apple juice.
