Quite a claim to be a British Champion, but these cider makers can do just that, having won classes at the British Cider Championships, held at the Royal Bath & West Show each June.

This month we're honing in on cider-makers who have won gold medals at recent championships for a variety of styles. The ciders supplied may not be the exact same as the winners, as many are small batch. In fact a few prize winners we approached couldn’t supply us enough for our cases - but fear not, there's still some real hidden gems to be had.

You will recieve:

North Down Cider Medium Sparkling - 5.5% - 500ml – Haselbury Plucknett, Somerset

Ross took over at North Down just a few years ago, but is already making a name for himself in the South West. This cider was British Champion Medium last year.

Moon’s Cider Medium Sparkling - 5% - 500ml - West Pennard, Somerset

Tom is a young cider maker going places and has won numerous awards and championships with this Medium Sparkling, made from a blend of Dabinett and Yarlington Mill from the family farm.

Cranborne Chase ‘The Whitewigs’ –Sweet 6% - 500ml - Blandford Forum, Dorset

Bill started making cider in 2011 on his family farm, using apples from the next door Rushmore Estate. He won Best in the Taste Class last year. It is a big, appley, sweet cider, quite special indeed.

Luke’s Cider “Original Sin 2021” - Medium 5.5% - 330ml – North Somerset

Luke is based in London, but produces cider from the family farm in North Somerset. He learned his craft in Somerset and Herefordshire, as well as cideries in Normandy, Aus and New Zealand, so knows a good cider and how to market it. “

Southdown Cider Premium Dry Still Cider - 6% - 500ml - Shepton Montague, Somerset

Overall British Champion of Champions beating 450 others with this very cider. A classic dry still cider, it might challenge a few palettes, but that’s part of the cider learning experience.

Lawrence’s Original Premium - Medium-Dry 6% - 500ml – Corton Denham, Somerset

John has been making fabulous oak-aged, traditional Somerset ciders for a number of years. Big, bold, tannic and complex, it’s a proper good cider for cheese and casseroles. He won at the Championship years ago, but this is a tribute to a lovely man and great cider.

Made in the UK
Bristol Cider Shop is the original independent cider shop in the UK, founded in 2010, to provide a range of craft ciders to both cider-loving and cider-curious Bristolians. Whilst some of the early history may be a bit hazy, due to a whirlwind of product tastings, having fun and learning about good (and bad) cider, the business moved online in 2011, to spread the word even wider. From the original shop, via the foodie hub of Harbourside, in 2020 we decided to focus online, to make proper cider available across the land. Along the way we were honoured to be awarded UK Independent Cider Retailer of the Year 2015 and 2018.

We will ship all orders in 2 working days maximum, often next day.  Deliveries are only made Monday to Friday.

Can I request delivery for a specific day?

Unfortunately we can't guarantee delivery for a specific date, but will try our best to delay it if needed for a future date. Just add a note to checkout.

What happens If I am not in?

3. It will be taken to your local Post Office for you to collect, and a card left through your letterbox.

How much does delivery cost?

Delivery is £5.95 for most of UK for your first case and then £2.95 for additional ones. Rather than hiding the delivery cost in the product price and offering free delivery (there’s no such thing as free delivery!) we’d rather be transparent about the cost of the product and the cost of the delivery.

Are there any places you cannot ship?

We currently only ship within the UK. Delivery to UK islands, Scottish Islands and Scottish Highlands postcodes may cost extra - delivery charges will be displayed at checkout. Unfortunately we cannot now deliver to Northern Ireland or the Channel Islands - apologies. Nor can we ship outside the UK.

I live in Bristol. Can I collect?

Unfortunately our licence doesn’t allow us to have customer collections on site so we can only take orders for delivery, sorry! Watch this space though for Summer 2024.

How can I track my order?

When we ship your order, you should receive an email from us containing a tracking code from our couriers . The quickest way to track your parcel is to follow the tracking link and this will show you the status of your delivery in real time. This will also allow you to change any delivery details if you need to. If you have any further problems, please email us at and we will do our best to help. Sorry we don't have a phone number.

Can I add a Gift Message?

Yes you can, simply add it in at checkout and we will include it on a card. No paperwork is included in the boxes, so no pricing information is given out.
