The Idea!

Where did it all start? A wishful thought during lockdown 1.0 one sunny Saturday afternoon, sitting in the garden with a cold bottle of cider. A thought appeared;

"Wouldn't it be great if I could make this taste a little better...".

"I wonder if I could make my own cider?'"

"Wheres my laptop?"

The Thinking Stage

"How do I make great cider?"

This sums up how we lived for the summer of 2020. Talking to lots of different 'experts', taking lots of cider making courses. making some new friends and rooting out those gems of knowledge that make the big differences.

The No Turning Back Stage

This is where the realisation hit...

"For this to work I'm going to have to quit my job, take out a huge loan and do this full time...eek" 

"Hmm, am I sure this is what I want to do?"

Then that question was answered with another lockdown and the current employment situation looking very uncertain. 

The Result

Better than we could have imagined!

A cider that tastes so good the words 'world domination' appear in the five-year plan.
