  • Sandford Orchards, Devon Red 4.5% 

Our friend and expert cidermaker, Barny Butterfield, is passionate about protecting Devon’s traditional cider methods. His award-winning ciders use naturally fermented apple juice from orchards within a 30-mile radius of their press in Crediton. Devon Red is a perfectly balanced, refreshing, medium cider named after the rich red soil that gives the orchards their distinctive quality. Pairs perfectly with charcuterie. 

  • Four Elms, Devon Ridge 6.8% 

Produced by the Smedley family at Four Elms Apple Farm in Newton Poppleford, Devon. The family handcraft their cider on a very small-scale using apples from the Devon orchards that were originally planted for Green Valley Cyder which was situated here at Darts Farm before Nick and Chris retired. This lightly sparkling cider is rich with a high tannin which gives a full aroma, it is a satisfying, good length drink that is a perfect match for cheddar cheese.

Produced in small batches at Weeks Farm in Mutterton, Devon, using traditional Westcountry cider apple varieties from their own ridge and furrow patterned orchard that dates back to the 1890s. Handcrafted using the artisan method of ‘arrested fermentation’ induced by multiple rackings, the production of this cider is tailored to each year’s apple harvest. This fresh, slightly sparkling cider is naturally sweet, full flavoured and well-balanced; perfect for enjoying alongside a dessert such as apple pie.
