We’ve been looking for a new home for a while now, but needed to find just the right location. We’ve struck lucky here with a rural location just outside the town where our cider will mature in the proper location. We have evenings planned down here testing and putting the world to rights.
We’ve already moved the cider in, and racked it. We’ve also moved our new IBC in for blending (1000 ltrs at a time) and Mrs Miggins, the apple mill. We still have Burt and Ernie (the presses) to moved just a little work to finish – work surfaces, sink etc.
This place will let us press and ferment, rack and blend all in one location. Bottling will be done this year by Bradley’s out at Hewish.
