Ty Gwyn Cider is made by Alex Culpin, a cider maker and musician, at a farmhouse lovingly restored by him and his wife, Laura, on Pen-Y-Lan Farm in the traditional cider-making county of Herefordshire. Ty Gwyn is the Welsh for ‘white house’, and takes its name from a farm belonging to Alex's stepfather, James, who had been growing cider apples since 1969.
Alex only uses fresh apples from local growers to press the juice for his ciders. He presses the fruit himself at the farm using a belt press, before a long fermentation that allows the juice to mature.
Ty Gwyn have won a number of awards at shows and competitions, and also boast several Great Taste Awards.
