Stowford Press Cider
Great tasting cider, rooted in tradition
Stowford Press combines century-old traditions with a flavour designed to appeal to more modern tastes. Stowford Press began its life as one of the traditional cider blends called ‘Vat 53’. It was over 30 years ago, that this blend was tweaked in the laboratory and thus, Stowford Press was born. Around 16 or 17 perfectly ripe apples find their way into every pint of Stowford Press cider.

Henry Weston, the great-grandfather came to 'The Bounds' at Much Marcle, Herefordshire in 1878 and continued the tradition of using fruit from the farm orchards to make cider and perry. Making and drinking cider and perry formed part of the pattern of life in the country. The development of commercial cider making began in 1880 when Henry recognised the threat from overseas imports, which had been created by the British Empire.
