We are a small family business producing up to 1500 gallons of award winning 100% natural apple cider each year. Our artisan approach places more emphasis on quality rather than quantity, always striving to make the best rather than the most. Using only natural yeast from the apples, every barrel tells it’s own story…….
Our methods are as traditional as they get! Every weekend in October and November, friends and family turn out in all weather’s to hand pick our unsprayed vintage cider apples which are bagged, crushed and pressed a ton at a time through straw on our traditional oak twin screw press, then fermented and matured in Oak barrels to produce a clear and clean natural cider, which is complex in flavour and aroma, full bodied and fruity with a subtle acid bite.
Our natural keeved cider is a dark, crystal clear, Normandy style sweet cider, containing only natural fructose sugars from the apples themselves. Available in its prime from spring to early summer.
The bulk of what we do is taken straight from the oak in draught form and is served in 5 gallon poly-barrels or 5 / 10 / 20 litre bag in box’s to retain freshness, ideal for parties, pubs and festivals. We also make a limited amount of 500ml bottle conditioned cider.
Enjoy this traditional Devon Cider and appreciate it for what it is, a product of nature derived from nothing but 100% Devon apples. Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information or would like to try our straw pressed Devon cider.
