It's in our family's DNA, in our very nature to be pioneering and original in our approach. Authentic cider lives here.

Based in the Herefordshire village of Much Marcle, we have a long family history of premium cider-making with our roots going back to 1880. Five Weston generations have worked with like-minded colleagues in the pursuit of their passion: creating authentic ciders that people will love.

Helen's Story

It all began in 1878 when Henry Weston, my great-grandfather, settled here and began to produce ciders and perries.

Using the wide variety of regional fruit grown in the surrounding orchards, he started pressing and blending. The fermented juice soon proved so popular that his work evolved into a business. Today ‘The Bounds’, the charming 17th century farmhouse and cider mill where it all began, remains home to his craft.

I’ve been Managing Director since 1996, and have been privileged to see some of the most exciting changes yet. Everyone remains passionate about producing the best cider. I like to think if my Great Grandfather were here, he’d be amazed – but also proud.

Our oak vat collection has continued to grow since 1880. Some of the vats were purchased over the years from other producers and distilleries. The vat house takes me back to my childhood; it remains a favourite part of the business for me. It certainly was an interesting place to be, growing up on a cider farm.

The Cider Maker

What makes Westons Cider unique? A commitment to doing things the right way. It takes time, but we can do this because we’re independent. For instance, we’ve invested in juice storage which allows us to develop great flavour profiles. Some of our liquids can be matured for up to 18 months. This freedom to marry traditional techniques with the best modern technology is why I love being a Cider Maker.
