Meet our ciders

Cider

At Torre Cider Farm we produce our own cider and apple juice from traditional cider trees found in our orchard.  The trees are a mixture of cider apples, dessert apples and cooking apples.  We have 6.5 acres of orchard that you can browse around at your leisure.  

All our cider is made from real apples, no concentrate.  Although we have invested in a lot of new stainless equipment the methods are traditional, we perform wild yeast fermentation's that can last month’s depending on the weather.  

A private tour can be arranged by prior appointment.  Meanwhile you are more than welcome to visit the  pressing room and there are various pieces of equipment around the farm along with information on our processes and procedures. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff who will be happy to help.

Cider season is between September and December, this is when the apple picking and pressing occurs, but this does vary according to when the apples are ripe. There is rushing Mother nature

Traditional Cider (Scrumpy):
Scrumpy cider is a traditional cider that is not filtered or pasteurised allowing it to be alive in the glass.  This tradition allows the flavours to develop and change over time.  For this reason sweeteners are used to sweeten the cider as sweeteners are non-fermentable sugars.  If fermentable sugars are used they would re-ferment into a very strong dry cider.  We use Sucralose as our sweetener; as this was picked out by customers in our blind taste test; but we are looking into other options also.  For bottled ciders these have been pasteurised which means they contain sugars rather than sweeteners (except Big Red which is bottle conditioned).  

Sulphites:
Traditionally sulphites are used in cider for a variety of reasons, to kill yeast, to preserve the cider whilst moving or bottling.  At Torre Cider we have spent a lot of time and money to make the pressing, fermentation and bottling process as clean as possible negating the need for sulphites.  As on 2018 no sulphites have been  added to Scrumpy ciders, and only ciders that are bottled outside the farm have them added.  2019 we are moving away from use of sulphites completely however our labels may still have 'contains sulphites' from historical use.
