Pearson’s Cider Co

After 25 years of working in the City and producing cider as a hobby, Mike Pearson finally took the plunge to move and go into cider production as a family business. And a good thing too – Pearson’s Cider has just won the Best Beer/Ale/Cider category at this year’s Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards! Pearson’s will be sampling their ciders in our stores during August so come and have a taste!

Top Tipple: Pearson’s Medium Dry Cider, a clear, lightly sparkling intensely appley cider.

Severn Cider

The Bull family has been making this award-winning cider for three generations and moved into commercial cider production as demand grew.

The distinctive bottles feature specially commissioned prints depicting local landscapes.

Top Tipple: the award-winning Medium Cider is made from heritage apple varieties grown in Gloucestershire for a full fruit flavour and golden colour.

Cotswold Cider Company

Using only the best vintage cider apples grown locally, this is cider as it should taste – clean, natural and well, appley! The flagship cider, No Brainer, says it all really – a dry, hazy cider so enjoyable, it’s kind of a no brainer!

Top Tipple: the Sideburn is a slightly sparkling, toffee-apple infusion!
