Napton Cidery made their first batch of cider as most do – from the apple tree in their garden. Thrilled by the result Napton Cidery was born the very next year, with the sole mission to collect unwanted apples from the village/surrounding orchards and make something wonderful. From pressing a simple 2000 litres in 2015, they now press over 45,000 litres; all sourced from small orchards across the UK to support sustainable British farming.
