Thornborough Cider is a small-batch craft cidery on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. We produce a small range of natural ciders from our own and local orchards, made with nothing but pure apple juice, wild fermentation and patience.

Our Apples

We have over 500 trees in our orchard with 18 varieties of cider and dessert apple. These include traditional northern varieties such as Ribston Pippin and Keswick Codling as well as vintage cider apples including Kingston Black, Dabinett and Yarlington Mill.

We also use surplus apples in the local area, from wild hedgerow trees to country estate orchards.

We produce a small but expanding range of ciders including champagne method, bottle conditioned and pet-nat.

Made from nothing but freshly pressed apples with the help of wild yeasts and with no added sulphites.
