A great big THANK YOU...
Well - Happy New Year! We realise there's not much we can say about the situations we're all currently facing - except WE KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!
But we would like to say a huge THANK YOU for all your support through 2020. It's been humbling and has made a huge difference to us, and hopefully will help real Somerset Cider survive for now and into the future.
...and a few lockdown treats
So we all know things ain't the greatest right now. But no option other than to keep on keeping on. For ourselves, we're just focusing on the summer months ahead, and really hoping we get to take part in at least some of our normal calendar of outdoor events.
We can't vouch for your psychological props, but we are going to try to do our bit to help keep the wheels on. Here are a few cider offers that will hopefully go some way to getting you through the winter months.
First of all, our Free Local Delivery & 15% Discount Scheme for our local customers has been extended and will continue to be operational for the forseeable future. Full details can be found below, and at our Shop page.
Free CHEESE. And mulling spice!!
We're also going to offer you a bit of a special treat. While stocks last, with every order of any six or more bottles, we're going to throw in a 200g (ish) wedge of Somerset Farmhouse Cheddar PLUS a Sachet of Mulling Spices for you to make your own mulled cider ABSOLUTELY FREE (unless you tell us you don't want it!) There's nothing like warm cider and good Cheddar to get you through the long winter evenings...
Once again, full details can be found at our Shop page

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.
