Oh, press fruit, get juice,
Plant trees, more bees
Learn to graft, raise a glass
Wild yeasts, yes please!
Don’t spray, handpick
Natural juice, Keep it real
Look out kid
The future is yours
We better protect the orchards
As the world is getting warmer
Tom and Lydia started Atristraw Cider after moving to Herefordshire's Wye Valley in 2017. They discovered the name Artistraw in Kilvert's famous diaries, it being a local term for a shrew. Inspired by Normandy, they work with the seasons to make natural, full-juice cider and perry from local fruit, using minimal intervention techniques including cold racking for natural sweetness and bottle finishing to give a sparkle. They are rapidly gaining acclaim and won Highly Commended at the Royal Three Counties Cider and Perry Competition 2018.
