Infused with Coul Blush Apple and served with chilled tonic and crisp red apple slices Caorunn has a lot to thank the humble British apple for, so it may come as no surprise that this year we’re joining bars and restaurants across the country to raise toast to National Apple Day.

Started in 1990 by Common Ground in Covent Garden National Apple Day will be celebrated this year on Wednesday 21st October 2015 and marks a day to recognise the wealth and variety of apples available in the United Kingdom.
