About Hogans

Hogan’s Cider launched in 2005 when Allen Hogan turned his twenty year hobby into a full-time business.

Hogan’s Cider Ltd is Warwickshire’s only commercial cider producer and is based at Haselor, near Alcester, Warwickshire although the process of cider making i.e. milling, pressing, fermentation, maturation, now takes places at Castlemorton, Worcestershire.

The fruit is sourced from the three counties of Herefordshire, Glocestershire and Worcestershire. The ciders are fermented from 100% fresh pressed English apples, no sugars are added prior to fermentation. It is then matured over several months before being bottled or sold as draught.

Another cider firm, H Weston's & Sons do Hogans packaging.

Distribution

It has been a busy 12 months for Hogan's who have signed deals with a number of distributors.

In July 2009, they announced a new partnership with Adnams, giving the Southwold brewer distribution and sales rights of the Worcestershire produced cider. In April 2010, the Purity Brewing Company of Gt Alne, Warwickshire agreed a distribution deal with Hogan's Cider meaning they can sell Hogan's Draught Cider direct to outlets in the West and East Midlands.

In February 2010, the were contacted by US specialty beer importer "Shelton Brothers of Massachusetts" who were looking for an authentic English cider to add to their range of hand-crafted beers and ales sourced from around the globe. It is hoped that shipments to the States will become a regular event.

Unfortunately, their cider is not available in bag in box.
