International Cider Challenge Winners
Celtic Marches are a single-estate apple cider producer,
nestled in a quiet corner of Herefordshire.
All apples used in their ciders are taken from their 200 acre orchards
on the family farm in Bishops Frome. This self-sustaining cider producer is in
a rare position, a result of over 100 years and numerous generations that have
dedicated themselves to the orchards and hop fields. This has allowed for full
control over their cider production from tree to glass. Awarded PGI status, you
can be assured that only Herefordshire apples are used in their craft cider.
