Thornborough Cider

Handcrafted Cider from Yorkshire

About Us

Here at Thornborough Cider we have been making small batches of award-winning cider from locally-sourced apples in the small village of Thornborough on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales since 2010.

Our cider is hand-pressed each autumn on a traditional rack and cloth cider press only using selected local Yorkshire apples. It is then left to ferment through the long Yorkshire winter before being bottled-conditioned in spring. Our cider contains a careful blend of over 50 varieties of apple and, unlike most ciders, it is unsulphited, unpasteurised and unfiltered. The end result is a refreshing dry sparkling Yorkshire cider that continues to develop its flavour in the bottle.

We supply pubs, bars, restaurants, farm shops and delis, as well as doing occasional market stalls and pressing demonstrations – see the Events page for more details.

All our cider is sourced, pressed and bottled in North Yorkshire, making this a true Yorkshire cider – we don’t buy in apples from anywhere else!
