Introducing BrightCider: Our Newest Addition

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our newest product, BrightCider! For many years we’ve spoken about creating a cider to sit alongside our beer and lager range. 2023 was the year that we finally made time to do it!

Crafted using traditional techniques and modern technology, BrightCider is a medium sweet cider which is gently sparkling and bursting with fresh, ripe, Devon apple character. Unhurried processing on the farm encompasses plenty of time for maturation, coaxing more layers of complexity from the cider, which gives a greater depth of flavour and beautiful balance. It’s tantalisingly juicy and mouth-watering on the first sip, and has gentle tannins to the finish, leaving a long-lingering refreshing apple flavour.

Unusually for many brands in Devon, this cider is made with juice pressed from apples grown entirely in our partner farmer’s own orchard. This means he has 100% control over how they are cultivated, picked, and processed. There have been orchards on this site since before the 1800s, and incredibly, some trees from that century still survive! Apples grown here include both dessert and cider varieties, those local to Devon and some from beyond, all of which contribute to the delicious BrightCider blend he has created for us. It’s not necessary to add more sulphites to the cider as they are already present in the pressed apple juices, it’s naturally gluten free, and is suitable for vegetarians.

Want To Try Our Cider?

If you’re wanting to try the fruits of our labor, you’ll be able to find it on draft at a few places in and around Manchester. We’ve recently delivered cider to our friends over at Casked Rawtenstall, as well as MJ’s in Ramsbottom, where you’ll be able to sip on our cider… Perfectly refreshing on a warm day, or to sip on as you watch the world go by.
