Established in 1987 the Norfolk Cider Company continues an unbroken tradition in the County of Norfolk, that dates back to 1204. Previous to establishing the Norfolk Cider Company the founder Stephen Fisher worked for Gaymers & Bulmers producing cider. Within Stephen Fisher's family history there is a long tradition within drinks business, His great, great grandfather P.B Burgoyne was one of the first people to import wine from Australia. Today Stephen and his daughters' run the Norfolk Cider Company, pressing the apples, bottling the cider, delivering and selling the cider to local farm shops, restaurants, agricultural shows, music festival's, as well as to a few good ol'pubs! During the summer you may see us at events such as the 'Norfolk Show' or 'East Anglian Game & Country' with our working Victorian wooden apple mill and press that we demonstrate on to show the public the equipment & techniques cider makers used many years ago!
We only use quality East Anglian orchard apples to create our drinks, we press the apples at our countryside barn and then allow for natural fermentation to commence creating our artisan traditional ciders. We use a mixture of culinary and dessert apples that creates a smooth cider that lacks astringency, almost like an apple wine and is around 7%abv.
Over the last 25 years the Norfolk Cider company has won several awards and is a past CAMRA national runner up, winner of CAMRA regional awards and the guild of fine food retailers.
