Orchard 101 is a family-run craft cider maker based in Sturminster Newton, at the heart of the Blackmore Vale in sunny Dorset, England. Our Ciders, Apple Juices and Apple Cider Vinegars (ACV) are made from apples grown, harvested, pressed and bottled at Orchard 101.
The apple trees at Orchard 101 were planted 25 years ago and produce between 10-20 tonnes of traditional cider apples per year. This allows us to make up to 6,000 litres of cider annually. This is the most we will ever produce, allowing us to keep the process artisan and traditional.
We care about quality and doing things the right way. No additives or packet yeasts are used, just apples and time. We do not use pesticides, leaving nature to do what she does best (with a little help from our neighbour's bees and a Medlar tree planted to help with pollination). All our Apple Cider Vinegars contain the mother and are raw, unfiltered and unpasteurised to keep all the goodness in the bottle.
We number all our finished bottles with batch numbers enabling us to trace each bottle right back to the apple tree. Enjoy a bottle or two of our Award-Winning Orchard 101 Ciders, Apple Juices and Apple Cider Vinegars from our heritage cider apple orchard.
