Lets get one thing straight from the start. I am not in this for the money, to me cider is a vocation, a passion, maybe even my calling.
My practice is very intuitive and some would say unorthodox. I have an idea, generally at the grading table in the orchard where I get to know the fruit and I persue this idea to present the best ciders possible.
I work without compromise, I am not interested in the median, I want to make the best I can and I dont hurry my products to market for a fast buck. As a result you can rest assured that when my ciders come to maket, they are at their best. This means that there is variation in my product range, year on year you may see different products as the fruit dictates, yet hopefuly there is a cider to suit all palletes at all times.
Over the next few weeks I will be updating and re-opening my online shop in readiness for Christmas and boy have I got some good ciders for you this year! Alongside the winner of the British Championship, White Label, I have a Kingston Black single variety which has been described as the 'best Kiingston Black I have ever tasted' by Nick Davis, the buyer for Bristol Cider Shop. Plus I have a few more treats up my sleeve...
