Cider Orchard and Tasting Tours
Dorset Nectar artisan cider is naturally fermented from 11 varieties of West Country cider apples grown on our family run farm. The sun ripened apples are whole crushed and pressed at the orchard’s cider barn, then patiently nurtured to create a smooth, delicious cider that is really fruity in taste and bursting with flavour. We hand crafted both of our hydraulic presses, the largest using two 58 tonne rams. We press using a traditional rack and cloth method and are renovating an antique twin screw press dating back to 1863.
Join us on an informative and enjoyable tour of our organic West Country cider orchard, following the journey from sun ripened apple to pressing and fermentation techniques to the eventual cider tasting of crisp golden nectar in a glass.
For £10, not only do you get a cider farm tour, but also a guided tasting of 12 different ciders, a stroll through the beautiful orchards and organic farm. You will learn more about how we make our delicious craft ciders right from our enthusiastic cider masters who are happy to answer your questions.
