We had a lot of fun selecting our Christmas Cracker case, and we hope it'll help bring some festive good cheer to the season. It's an eclectic mix and each has a subtle Christmas theme. Some are produced using different techniques or are barrel-aged for luxurious flavour notes, and we couldn't complete our Christmas collection without a (proper) mulled cider.

So here's what you'll get in this month's cheery case:

Oliver's 'Gold Rush #9' 330ml - Medium-Dry, 6.8%, Herefordshire

A classic from the legendary Tom Oliver, blended in collaboration with Ryan Burk from Angry Orchard USA. This whisky barrel-aged cider produces a full-bodied, distinctive taste, inheriting spicy notes from the barrels, and acidity and sharpness from a small amount of Foxwhelp apple. There's a lot going on in here!

Newton Court 'Gasping Goose' Organic 500ml - Medium, 5%, Herefordshire

The perfect cider to accompany your Christmas goose! This is the most popular cider in Paul's range and is certified organic. 'Gasping Goose' is a complex, sparkling, medium cider with a slightly tannic finish. If you haven't got a goose to hand then pair it with a pork belly or a chicken pie - it's a proper cider that loves hearty real food.

Rull Orchard 'Orchard Baubles' 500ml - Medium, 6%, Devon

Mike is one of the UK's few qualified Pommeliers, and has put these skills to great use first by planting and now harvesting from a new orchard on the slopes of the Exe Valley, in idyllic East Devon, to create really great ciders. 'Orchard Baubles' is a winter's evening cider, with wood barrel aromas and a full bodied, complex taste, perfect for sipping in front of the fire. One of our customer favourites from last Christmas.

Worley's ‘Somerset Keeved Special Edition’ 500ml - Medium, 6%, Somerset

An absolute belter from Neil Worley. This has only recently been released and is a brilliant addition to Neil's already excellent range. Keeving stops the fermentation before all of the sugar has turned to alcohol, resulting in a naturally sweeter cider. This limited batch cider is crystal clear, lightly sparkling and simply delicious.

Pilton 'Tamoshanta' 330ml - Medium Sweet, 4.5%, Somerset

The product of an experiment in keeving and barrel-ageing by Martin Berkeley. Initial fermentation takes place in large vats, but on Burns Night the young cider is transferred to Scotch whisky barrels to finish and mature, where it picks up its deeper colour and smokey notes. Great served chilled with Somerset Cheddar.

Rich's ‘Mulled Cider’ 750ml – Medium-Sweet, 4.5%, Somerset

We couldn't complete our Christmas collection without a mulled cider and this is one of our favourites. This is proper cider, spiced with clove and cinnamon, for the classic taste of cold winters nights in the run up to Christmas. Gently warm through and serve with a slice of apple (and maybe a shot of Somerset Cider Brandy) for that wonderful feeling of warming up from the inside out!

Our monthly guest cases are available as standalone cases or you can subscribe to receive them at a discount as part of our Craft Cider Subscription for only £20 a month plus delivery.

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?

2. Delivery will be attempted 2 more times to you

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.
