Organic Cider – Traditional & still (Sweet, Medium & Dry)

How do you make cider?
Our organic ciders are made in a very traditional way. We pick our apples only when they are ripe (you check this by looking to see if the apple pips are brown) and sort them on the sorting table, making sure only the best apples are pressed into juice. The apples are then washed in the water bath and pressed with our apple press (the left over apple pommace is fed to our Oxford Sandy & Black pigs which they love!)
Our cider barrels are filled up and left to naturally ferment. We do not add any sugars or yeasts at this stage so our cider ferments from the natural sugars within the apples themselves. After a few months the cider is ‘racked off’ into new barrels to mature leaving behind the lees in the bottom of the original barrel. Once we’re happy the cider has matured, our organic cider is bottled off ready for our customers to enjoy. We do not add sulphites at this stage because we believe that we can make a naturally made organic cider without adding any nasty artificial additives. IN NATURE WE TRUST.
