Dowding's

Picture for manufacturer Dowding's

Dowding's is a small producer based at "Apple HQ", near Shepton Montague in Somerset. Oliver Dowding takes pride in making artisan, full-juice cider from the fresh juice of apples sourced from their own unsprayed orchards, along with surplus local fruit.

The Dowding family planted their orchard of 60 apple trees back in the 90's, which has since grown to well over 500 traditional cider, desert, and cooking apple trees. They have named their cider "Tower Brue", taking the name from King Alfred's Tower, which can be seen from the orchards, and the nearby River Brue.
