West Country Ciders

Lyme Bay cider-making: Combining traditional skills with modern techniques

At the Lyme Bay Winery we are passionate about keeping the craft of West Country cider-making alive. For over fifteen years we have used the freshly pressed juice of locally grown, traditional cider apple varieties such as Dabinett, Kingston Black and Yarlington Mill, to produce a quality range of real, full flavoured ciders.
