The Coronation Case - May 2023

The Coronation Case - May 2023

Regular price £28.00

We love a theme for a mixed case so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity for a coronation themed case! Don’t worry, the ciders involved are only loosely connected to the theme (some very loosely!) and are all excellent ciders in their own right so hopefully they will go down equally well with pro-monarchy and pro-republican cider drinkers alike!

Celtic Marches ‘King’s Tipple’ (4.5%) Herefordshire

We couldn’t have a coronation case without including Celtic Marches’ new King’s Tipple. It’s light and easy-drinking and the perfect tipple for a sunny bank holiday.

Craft Cider Co ‘Core’ (5%) Gloucestershire

This is the CORE-onation cider! See what we did there? Okay it’s not specifically coronation themed but is the new cider from James McCrindle’s stable. It blends craft cider with a small amount of apple juice to bring the alcohol down to 5% and produce a very fruity finish.

Dunkertons ‘Court Royal’ (7.5%) Gloucestershire

This is a more regally themed cider and in this case refers to the apple that the cider is made from. Court Royal is an organic single-varietal from Dunkertons and is produced near to King Charles’s family home of Highgrove in Gloucestershire.

Harry’s ‘Dabinett’ (4.5%) Somerset

A bit cheeky but we couldn’t resist including a cider from (Prince) Harry! While there was plenty of talk about whether he would turn up or not, this cider is a solid inclusion having been a previous winner of Champion Cider at the British Cider Championships.

Lyne Down ‘Roaring Meg’ (5.2%) Herefordshire

And even if Meg’s not coming to the coronation she still made it into the coronation case! Roaring Meg is another great organic cider which is made from the orchard at Lyne Down, which was developed by the pioneering cidermaker Jean Nowell.

Ross on Wye ‘Headless Man’ (6%) Herefordshire

We’re sure that Charles III won’t go the same way as Charles I who famously lost his head – and we hope that he won’t chop off our heads for having a bit of fun with this case! Headless Man is a still cider, matured in a whisky barrel for extra complexity and flavour.

We hope that you enjoy this month’s selection. Watch out for our June case and if you haven’t done so already why not subscribe to get 15-20% off the individual case price.

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.

How quickly will I get my order?

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?

Because we are shipping a Licensed product (alcohol), parcels wont normally be left safe. One of 3 things will happen:

1. It will be delivered to a neighbour and signed for - the tracking will show a photo

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.
