The ciders made are a blend of up to 35 varieties, among them Ashmead's Kernal, Wickson, Hudson’s Golden Gem, Ribston Pippin, Cox’s Orange Pippin, Dabinette, Frequin Rouge, etc. The ciders are all made in the following way: apples are aged for a month after picking, milled and macerated for a week and pressed in a basket press traditionally lined with straw. They are then fermented and aged in old barrels. After this the styles diverge, but we always use fermenting juice from the next vintage to initiate the secondary fermentation in bottle and we never add anything but apples.
