About Kent Cider Co...
Growing up in rural Kent I developed a love of the countryside and the outdoors from an early age. As a young lad roaming in fields and woodland, and later as a teen working through the seasons in orchards pruning and picking I have have never been far from apples.
Like may people I went onto make a successful career by working hard and sitting indoors. Luckily this is how I met Serena. Newly married we wanted to find a new challenge, something we could do together as a business that would connect us with the seasons and enable us to utilise some of the huge quantity of Kentish apples on our doorstep.
Through a fortuitous chain of events we met a cider maker who was looking to retire from his orchard and give up his cider making equipment. After some negotiation we struck a deal, part of which was the benefit of his many years of cider making experience. And so the Kent Cider Co was formed.
Eight years later we are proud to be part of a flourishing Real Cider industry making our own contributions to this delicious, complex and often potent drink. Our mission has always been to create something exciting for the drinker and challenging to ourselves as a producer: ciders with depth, unique flavours and finishes – that celebrate the seasons and diversity of apple traditions.
