Traditional hand crafted dry cider

Traditional hand crafted dry cider

Apple cider is made from the juice of our apples and left to ferment into apple cider. This traditional process is totally natural. Wild yeasts on our apples convert the sugar in apple juice into alcohol. No preservatives, additives or carbonation are used in this process. Our ciders are fermented in oak barrels. Traditional cider is dry with very little residual sugar. This process can take from three months to six months depending on the temperature. Our ciders are then strained, bottled and left to finish fermentation in the bottle before being pasteurised at low temperatures. We are also making some cherry  cider, Ice cider and plan to make some hopped cider all from produce that we grow.

We have planted and grafted approximately 1250 Cider apple trees. We have:

Kingston Black, Michelin, Dabinett, Bulmers Norman, Yarlington Mill, Brown Snout, Stoke Red, Somerset Redstreak, and Brown’s Apple.

More desert apple trees are being grafted over to cider varieties again in 2018

Season 1918 should see traditional cider from our cider apples
