If you're looking for an unusual gift for a cider lover you want it to be special. Something created by a craftsman using high quality ingredient; rather than a few bottles you'd pop in the trolley with the weekly shop.
The National Association of Cider Makers have estimated that there are just under 500 cider producers in the UK and with the vast majority of these being independent cider houses we have a lot to delight all cider aficianados.
Mass produced cider (not going to mention any names) have more syrups, flavourings and concentrates than apples and a long list of ingredients. That's not the sort of cider we stock. Our ciders contain apples, fruit and not a lot else, if anything.
We're listed our top 5 gifts here and if you scroll down, a little but more info on some of our most popular cider producers who feature in our cases.
