We believe our cidermakers are the best in the business, and our passion for quality has led to an unrivalled range of premium ciders.
We sell our ciders across the UK throughout the on and off trade. Our ciders are also available worldwide including Australia and USA.
Continually investing back into the company is part of our philosophy. We value our heritage, but embrace change and look ahead.
Our Jubilee Building is our state of the art packaging and warehouse facility that was opened by Their Royal Highnesses The Earl and Countess of Wessex in 2014.
Our most precious assets are our giant oak vats, used for maturing our cider. They are some 150 years old, each made from English oak, and help give our ciders their distinctive character.
It’s our deep knowledge and passion for apple varieties that set us apart. Our ciders are authentic, full of flavour and with a distinct character that reflects English cidermaking at its best.
Don’t just take our word for it
Over the years we’ve racked up quite a few awards for our cider. We’re really proud of that. It’s a sign of the consistent care, quality and dedication that goes into every part of Thatchers, from the orchards to the barrel and beyond.
