We take an authentic approach to all of our ciders – tree-ripened, fresh pressed, and all natural.
Our ciders are handcrafted from traditional cider apples from our old growth orchard, and finished with delicate dessert apples, for the sought after balance between tannin, acidity, and sweetness.
Our great-grandfather, George Washington Ward, began a rich tradition by planting European cider specific apples on our family’s estate back in the early 1920’s. This tradition continues to inspire us today. Our ciders are crafted with a blend of Bramley, Chisel Jersey, Bulmers Norman, Porters Perfection, Lord Lambourne, Belle de Boskoop, and a touch of Cox’s Orange Pippin.
Our Cider Making
All great cider starts in the orchard. At Wards Cider we truly believe that, in order to craft the best cider, you have to use the best apples. You could say, it’s at the core of our process. All of Wards cider is a reflection of our family’s passion, passed down through generations, combined with the science and art of cider making.
