A small craft cider producer which uses apples that would mostly otherwise be wasted. Only local apples are used for Rutts Gold Cider, while other ciders are made from West Country cider apples from selected specialist orchards in Dorset and Hereford. If you have a productive apple tree, read on.
Rutts Lane Cider collects from large orchards, small orchards and single trees in peoples’ gardens. If you are local and have more apples than you can use please contact them to see if they could be used for next year’s cider. Their long hooked poles can shake them down from even the highest branches.
New Ciders for this year are single variety ciders from Dabinett and Yarlington Mill apples, as well as a Perry from a 400 year old Red Longdon Perry Pear tree.
