Ventons Devon Cyder

A traditional cidermaker producing up to 1500 gallons a year of natural straw pressed artisan cider.

All apples are from unsprayed vintage cider orchards around the East Devon area of Whimple (old Whiteway's territory) including their own traditional cottage orchards. Juice is pressed on a large homemade oak twin-screw press, about a ton of apples at a time, through fresh straw, fermented & matured in oak barrels. Cider is unfiltered and gains its clarity from "racking off" the fermented juice from the yeast lees into fresh, clean barrels.
