Growing

Our fruit is grown in orchards that we ensure have been neither sprayed nor fertilised. The fruit is selected from local orchards producing traditional varieties that offer vintage quality of fruit. We are committed to conserving and propagating old traditional varieties. We have recently established 'Box Kernel' in our orchards. which to the best of our knowledge is peculiar to the village of Awre.


We have propagated an orchard from the last surviving Box Kernel tree. We have now harvested and processed our first crop and you can find this in our range of ciders

severn cider box treeHarvesting

Our trees are harvested at different times to ensure each variety is
picked at its peak for perfect ripeness.


The fruit is mainly hand picked in an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment,
against a backdrop of our glorious Gloucestershire countryside.

Process

All fruit is hand sorted and washed, ready for milling and processing.
The juice is fermented and then matured in oak casks until ready for bottling.

 

 

 

 

 

Bottling

When bottling we label each variety with a specially
commissioned print from local artist Steve Hyslop.
These prints demonstrate the dramatic diversity
of our rural environment.

Storing & Using


The cider is now ready for drinking and enjoying.
It is best stored in a cool place and
served slightly chilled.
