Napton Cidery made their first batch of cider as most – from the apple tree in their garden! Turns out they were born cider makers! The cidery turned from hobby to business in 2015 with the sole mission to collect unwanted apples from their village and surrounding orchards, to make a truly spectacular cider offering.
CIDER WAS A HOBBY UNTIL 2015, NOW IT IS VERY MUCH FAMILY LIFE.
We made our first batch of cider as most do – from the apple tree in our garden. Turns out we were born to be cider makers! We started Napton Cidery the very next year, with the sole mission to collect unwanted apples from our village and surrounding orchards to make something wonderful. From pressing a simple 2000 litres in 2015, we now press over 45,000 litres; all sourced from small orchards across the UK to support sustainable British farming.
2019 has been a huge year for Napton Cidery; we received our first batch of crowdfunding thanks to a wonderful group of investors and since then we’ve created a new look for our cider, undergone renovations in the cidery and are set to launch a brand new range.
We cannot express how lucky we are to be surrounded by the team of people who have made Napton Cidery happen. We’re a family run business and with help from a handful of friends working countless hours, we’ve grown our small cidery into something really special. Stay tuned for more information on our cider team.
Our apples are fermented naturally with wild yeast and slowly matured without artificial flavourings or preservatives for an all natural cider that’s packed with flavour. Our small cidery continues to perfect smooth and rounded recipes that are expertly crafted, without compromise. Visit our farm to see the process and taste our limited edition recipes.
