COLEMANS CIDER CO. IS COMMITTED TO PRODUCING THE YORKSHIRE CIDER OF THE HIGHEST CALIBER AND DISTINCTION, EACH CIDER EXPRESSING THE UNIQUE TERROIR OF THIS FINE COUNTY.
All our craft ciders, which are made in small batches using freshly pressed apple juice and other locally sourced fruits, contain no artificial colours, sweeteners, preservatives or flavourings. In fact all we add is yeast and a little sugar to sweeten our ciders.
Our strong environment principles means that we aim to use fruit that would otherwise go to waste, swapping apples for cider or apple juice with local communities as well as buying apples from small commercial produce who share our view of the world.
Our ciders are sub-divided into three main ranges each with their own unique numbering system. The first is our original core cider range crafted using solely locally sourced Yorkshire apples and pears. We have been producing our Eastern Counties style Dry, Medium and Sweet ciders since we started in 2015. The following year we added our Pear cider made using 50% locally sourced pears and 50% Yorkshire apples. In 2017 we started producing our own West Country style Special Reserve Cider using Yorkshire cider apples together with seasonal Spiced cider developed as a tasty alternative to mulled wine during the Christmas period.
The second range is our fruit ciders. Although we initially resisted requests to produce fruit ciders we eventually gave into to demand and produced our first batch of Rhubarb cider in 2016. The run away success of this product encourage us to develop a range of fruit ciders all using locally sourced fruits and made to the same demand standards we had set for our core cider range. Although we are constantly developing new varieties our current range includes Sloe, Elderflower, Rose (strawberry), Damson, Lavender and Rhubarb.
The third range, which is new for 2019 is our single variety range of West Country style ciders made from the highest quality Hereford cider apples. Many traditional small commercial cider apple growers in this part of the world are now under threat as the big cider producers are terminating their contracts with UK growers and switching to cheaper overseas producers. Without new markets these orchards are under threat and we are proud top be doing our bit to help preserve these wonderful small scale commercial orchards. This year we will be introducing Dabinett and Michelin single variety ciders but hope to expand this range in coming years.
Finally, last but by no means least is our range of apple juices. Although once again we never set out to be an apple juice producer, we have once again given into demand and produce limited quantities of freshly pressed apple juice which is free from any added ingredients. A pure apple juice is supplemented by a range of fruit apple juices using the same locally sourced fruits we use to make our fruit ciders.
