We are Beard & Sabre – craft, hopped-cidermakers. It is our mission to combine the very best of British cidermaking with brewing to create exciting, unique drinks for independent bars seeking the ultimate point of difference.
We summon our ciders from 100% pressed, heritage variety apples picked and sacrificed on ancient orchards in Shepton Mallet. The cider is fermented using natural yeasts and left to mature for a minimum of two years. Our ciders are imbued with apple juice from the same season’s pressing, adding body and flavour rarely found in commercially wrought beverages.
Finally, we infuse specially selected, British grown hops chosen to complement each cider’s natural tannin and acidity to create interesting and unique drinks that are completely natural, both respecting British cider’s ancient reverence, and honouring the long forgotten gods of cider.
