The History of Bristol Ciderworks

Back in the mid ’90s, an old Victorian cider press and mill were bought at auction by a man wanting to try out making his own home-made version of his favourite tipple. Apples were picked from nearby orchards and the machinery was put into action. The juice was left to ferment over a few months, and what was produced was the beginnings of what Bristol Ciderworks is today. For a couple of years it was a bit of fun for Greg and his friends, a venture into the world of real cider-making and real cider-drinking. Over the years the machinery used has been updated, and the quantity of cider made has grown, but essentially it’s the same stuff.

Real cider made from just apples and nothing else.
