Get your cider ready for October!

With so many varieties of cider available, it can be overwhelming to pick a list that suits your venue and customers well, especially when your customer starts asking for your recommendation. 


When hosting a sophisticated bar, the offerings need to reflect the clientele that walk through the door. You need something that sparkles just like wine. Kentish Pip Skylark is a next generation sparkling cider, popping with big notes of fresh Kentish dessert apples, followed by a flourish of complex cider tannins. Slow fermentation of this special blend of dessert and cider varieties creates a deeply refreshing, medium dry cider for people who expect the beyond.

A cosy pub during the autumnal, and upcoming winter months, deserves a cider to warm customers from the inside. Thatchers Cider has a fruity and floral aroma. Medium bodied with a lovely mouth filling mousse and the delicate flavour of freshly pressed apples. This thirst-quenching, lip-smacking drink is great for a peaceful evening. 


The restaurant setting is the perfect place for a ‘grown-up’ cider. Jake’s Cider is made from three Estate-grown apples that are combined to form a drink fit for dedicated cider traditionalists and curious wine purists. 100% of the juice is from these Kentish dessert apples. Treated like a sparkling wine, each apple variety is fermented separately using wine yeasts. A balanced blend leads to a clean, wine-like style. A pure, refreshing and crisp craft cider that sits between dry and sweet.

Rosie’s Pig Rhubarb is perfect for the beer garden. There are still a few weeks left of sunshine and we will be soaking up every last bit before we can say goodbye to the summer. This cider is complex, slightly astringent with a hint of citrus and tart finish. Made with fresh pressed Herefordshire apples & slowly matured to create a well-balanced cider with a fruity taste that is refreshingly moreish. 


Looking for an option for all the above? The Thatcher’s Fusion pump is the perfect solution with three flavours to suit every customer. Blood Orange infusion is a vibrant mouth-watering, juicy cider, bursting with blood orange flavour. Waves of orange aromas burst from the glass.
Dark Berry has a rich fruity flavour and fresh berry aroma adds an exciting new twist to our range. Cloudy Lemon is bursting with zingy lemon for the perfect balance of sweet and sharp notes, characterised by the intense, fragrant aroma of lemon juice.
