Barbourne Cider Co.
Our ciders are made from a mixture of bittersweet, bittersharp and sharp apples which are grown in standard and half standard orchards in Worcestershire. We take a pride in knowing the orchard location and the varieties of apples used in every barrel we make, which in turn means we able to understand and influence the flavours and qualities of our finished ciders.
We use orchards that contain some of the older varieties of cider apples which make some really distinctive ciders. Early in the season we press Foxwhelp with Bulmers Norman, Redstreak and Major with Browns Apple and Harry Masters Jersey with Browns Apple. Later on other varieties ripen such as Lavignee, Brown Snout, White Norman and Kington Black. The Kingston Black is fermented on its own and bottle conditioned later as a single varietal cider. By mid November we are picking and pressing Dabinet, Yarlington Mill, Ashton Brown Jersey and finally Vilberie.
After fermentation on wild yeasts, the barrels are racked and by late Spring certain blends and single varietal ciders are selected for bottling and competitions such as Putley’s Big Apple contest and The Three Counties Competition.
In addition to our range of ciders we also produce bottled and draught perry. All of the perry pears we use are handpicked by the team from standard orchards in Worcestershire. When the perry is ready we bottle much of it as Single variety Blakeney Red Perry (Still and Meduim Sweet), Bottle Conditioned Worcestershire Perry (naturally sparkling dry perry) or Sweet Worcestershire Perry (still). The remainder is sold as as draught to our loyal customers.

How it Works
By ordering through CraftiBeer you will have your ciders dispatched directly from Barbourne within 48 working hours of your order being placed. Please note orders placed on a weekend or bank holidays will be processed the next working day. Please choose which beers you would like and use the shop to purchase them and let us know where you would like them delivered.
Postage: Our preferred carrier is Parcel force. Delivery is charged at £7.99 per case of cider. We can fit 12 or 24 ciders in a box for the same delivery charge. So 2 packs of 12 beers cost the same to deliver as 1 box of 12. The exception is the bag in a box. We can ship two 5 litre boxes and two 10 litre boxes for the same price as one. But we can only ship one 20 litre box per shipping price of £7.99. However that still equates to just over 35 pints in a box.Shipping will occur on a Tuesday and a Thursday direct from Barbourne Cider Co. If you place an order outside of these days, your order will ship on the next shipping day.
Please ensure that someone over the age of 18 is available to receive or collect the delivery as the delivery driver will not hand the parcel to someone under the age of 18.
We are confident the beers will reach you in the premium condition as intended by the brewery. However, if for any reason you feel the need to contact us please email email@example.com so we can assist you.
