When we learnt about the decline of heritage apple varieties in Britain, their amazing, diverse flavours, rich cultural significance and even their peculiar names we leapt straight in. We discovered that their plight was caused by a loss of traditional orchards, which was affecting pollinator numbers overall biodiversity.
We seek out the last remaining traditional orchards around the country, selecting the tastiest and most interesting apple varieties their area has to offer. We pay a higher, fairer price to growers who are preserving heritage varieties, protecting older orchards and practicing sustainably, as all of these factors improve the flavour of our juices.
The fruit then arrives at our press - just outside London - separated by variety and orchard. We sample each individually and craft blends that celebrate the range of flavour, regional character and seasonal changes of the humble apple.
