The starer, the wood-cat,

the purblind, the furze cat,
the skulker, the bleary-eyed,
the wall-eyed, the glance-aside
and also the hedge-springer.

In folklore, Hares have often been associated with the transition from Summer into Autumn, bathed in silver light from the harvest moon, leaping forward to greet the new season.

At a time of the year when most creatures are readying themselves for the slumber of Winter, the cidermaker is doing quite the opposite. Apple season begins with the last of the Summer warmth and for us, will continue until the last apple is gathered by hand and pressed at around Christmas, by which time our limbs will be as heavy as the sacks of apples we’ve just spent the last three months filling!

This is a small batch mid season blend of fruit from three different, but equally beautiful old orchards in the Golden Valley. Dry with lemony acidity and silky tannins with a note of leather and cedar wood on the finish, pair this with spiced lamb or autumnal veg dishes.

How quickly will I recieve my order?

Everything is packed and shipped by us (Tom and Lydia) at the cidery and we aim to get all orders out within two days of purchase. If you need your cider more quickly, get in touch and we'll do our best to help!

 Orders are shipped via APC on a next day delivery service.

Does the cider have a use by date?

Unopened and stored in a cool, dry place our cider will be good to drink for around three years  As a general rule, like wine, cider has excellent capacity for ageing.

If the cider has been opened we recommend sealing with a champagne stopper and storing in the fridge for no more than 24 hours.

Is the cider vegan friendly?

Yes, our only ingredient is apples!

Is the cider organic?

We only use organically grown, unsprayed apples in our cider. Due to the number of orchards we care for belonging to other people we are not able to offically certify ourselves organic at this point in time.

Does the cider contain sulphites?

Our cider does not contain sulphites, however our perries contain a trace amount.

I'm local. Can I come and collect my order?

Of course! Please select the local pickup option at the checkout and we look forward to meeting you!
