Days are getting longer…

Well into the new year, the first shoots of Spring are appearing and we're looking forward to the warmer months ahead! Our new season's cider is busy fermenting & maturing as it always does – it's so good to know we can rely on the rhythms of the cider-making season when everything else is going haywire.

We're hoping to take part in at least some of our normal calendar of outdoor events this year, but even if this is not possible, we'll still be making delicious traditional ciders for you to enjoy through 2021 and beyond.

Award-winning and authentic

In case you aren't familiar with what we do, we are a cider maker based in Somerset, producing delicious cider from heritage cider apples that we press ourselves. Our ciders are very drinkable, blended to be perfectly balanced whether it’s still or sparkling: dry, medium or sweet.

We don’t make cider from apple juice concentrate. There’s a big difference in flavour, depth and quality, so we stick to using fresh juice from apples we press ourselves.

We have won many awards for our ciders. In 2019 we received 3-stars at the Great Taste Awards for Special Reserve; and went on to win the Nigel Barden Heritage Award at the annual prize-giving ceremony. A few weeks later, Special Reserve picked up Champion Cider for 2019 at the Taste of the West Awards. There's no doubt this is a seriously good cider!

Red Hen, our fantastic medium-dry sparkling cider, also won a 1-star Great Taste Award and a Gold Medal at the Taste of the West in 2019.

Of our other ciders, Beatnik Billy is a light, medium-sweet cider that is wonderful served ice-cold, and Rocky Road is a popular medium cider, complex and rich, but easy-drinking enough for everyone to enjoy.

You will be able to taste the difference in the seriously good flavours we achieve just from apple fruit and no flavourings.

“I bought a couple of bottles (Mendip Hills and Premium Vintage) from Thorners today. Just drank them and they were absolutely delicious, especially the Mendip Hills - lovely apple flavour. Thanks!”
