The orchard ciders we import from Great Britain are made exclusively from, or with a high percentage of, cider apples rich in tannins and sharp in flavor. Often cloudy and unfiltered, they are sometimes referred to as scrumpy.

These family-owned farmhouse ciders are produced on such a limited scale that the product is only sold locally and few Americans have ever experienced the joy of tasting real heritage ciders. Until now.

In addition, some areas from which we source are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Supporting rural cider makers helps make these family farms economically viable and helps resist encroaching development.

What is craft cider?

...the skill of a true craft cider maker is the selection and blending of apples, and an easy way to spot a proper cider maker is that they will talk about apple varieties as passionately as wine makers talk about grapes.
