Latest news

Throughout the entire process of making our cider and bringing it to market we have sought to use local professionals, companies and services wherever possible, thereby helping to support those local businesses who have gone out of their way to support us on our journey.

Artwork and Label Design
A huge thanks to Joanna Watson, freelance graphic designer from Darley Abbey, who has worked tirelessly on the Darley Abbey Cider artwork and label design for our bottles. Joanna can be contacted on 07729 817387.

Bottling & Packaging
Kieron Atkinson and the team at Complete Bottling in Derby are taking delivery of 3300L of cider at the end of March. They will then clarify and lightly carbonate the cider, filling up to 10,000 bottles each one sporting our new label. Complete Bottling works with local artisan producers like us as well as large national producers of both beer and cider. Kieron can be contacted on 01332 987697.  

Label Printing
Our labels are printed by Positive ID Labelling in Melbourne using their Jetrion 4900 digital printing press, one of only a handful in the UK. Commenting on the collaboration, Sales Manager, Dominic Rafferty, said: "We are thrilled to be helping with this project. The label designs are fantastic and the output should look great on the finished product." Dominic can be contacted on 01332 864895. 

ABV Testing
Thanks to the team at Murphy and Son in Nottingham who tested the alcohol by volume (ABV) of the cider in February. Our three IBC tanks measured 5.3%, 5.6% and 5.9% ABV giving an average BV of 5.6% once the three tanks are blended together.
