Cider

BEARDspoon Cider is all about the taste and purity - with over 9 years of experience crafting the most tantalisingly tasting tongue twisting Cider, using nothing but the highest quality Kent apples, we have perfected a unique and refreshing flavour sought after across the country.

Our endeavors have been recognised by Cider drinkers nationally by awarding us on an almost yearly basis since we began our adventure. It is an honour to receive these awards (detailed further on the page) but the true test comes with your first sip. Interested? See what we've been working on below.

All our ciders are available in 10l and 20l Bag in Boxes or in cases of 12 x 500ml bottles - please be aware we are currently wholesale only.
