Thirsty Farmer - Award Winning Nottinghamshire Cider

The Fear Family first made Cider on their Farm in 1880 and supplied a Public house in Weston-Super-Mare. They have been making Cider and most importantly drinking Cider ever since.

Now they live in Rural Nottinghamshire and grow their own Cider apples, which enables them to continue their family tradition of producing quality Cider while upholding the ancient art of REAL Cider.

Mr Whitehead's Cider Company

Since the age of fifteen, Angus Whitehead has been making the most of the fruits of his garden.

Guided by recipes handed down through generations, many experiments were created using all sorts of soft and hard fruit.

Over the autumn of 2003, dedicated plans were made, machinery equipment and vessels purchased and 60 tonnes of apples pressed.

Now 16 years later, Mr Whitehead's Cider Company produces in excess of 500,000 litres of cider, juice and vinegar every year.

Proud to Use Own Fruit

As well as growing their own fruit – Mr Whitehead’s Cider Company planted some 6,500 trees between 2012 and 2018 in their 7 acre orchard – they supplement their own crop with apples and pears from mainly the Hampshire Downs and the South of England. Growing lots of different varieties of cooking, eating and dessert apples have allowed Angus to create some new and interesting blends, whilst using old and traditional methods to make special ciders throughout the strength range.
