The Spring Case

This month, in honour of the new season, we’ve picked 6 new ciders that we’ve never stocked before. They’re all blends from producers that we’ve worked with before but for one reason or another have never managed to get them on the shelves. It’s a good mix of tastes and styles and covers 5 different counties so there’s plenty of variety!

Bushel & Peck ‘Slow & Easy’ (6%) Gloucestershire

We love the fact that Bushel & Peck’s core range is named after the style of cider that each blend of apples produces. Fresh & Crisp (eating apples) and Rich & Mellow (cider apples) were always favourites in the shop and Slow & Easy is a new addition to the range.

Courtney’s ‘Exmoor Rebel’ (4.6%) Devon

We featured Courtney’s Silly Cow and Whimple Orchards in our East Devon case but Exmoor Rebel is new to the fold. Made from a blend of Devon apple varieties grown on the old Whiteways orchards, which were once the largest cider apple orchards in the world.

Hunts ‘Wobbler’ (6%) Devon

Another Devon cider, we’ve featured a few from the Hunts range before but this is a first for their oldest cider, produced on the farm for over 200 years! It's a slightly more traditional, still cider but is very fruity so is accessible and slips down very easily.

Napton No. 3 (6%) Warwickshire

Up to Warwickshire for this one and possibly the most northerly cider we’ve stocked in the shop! We included their blackcurrant cider in our fruit case but this is the first time we’ve featured their core cider range. No. 3 is a full-strength dry cider (but not too dry).

Saxby’s Original (5%) Northamptonshire

Another cider from the middle of the country, Saxby’s are well known for their range of proper fruit ciders. We featured their lower alcohol 3.9% cider in our Summer Party Case but wanted to include their original blend which is a bit stronger and more full-bodied.

Stones ½ & ½ (5.5%) Somerset

We featured Alan’s Ram of Shepton in our Brilliant Blends case and we used to sell his draught cider and his cider books in the shop but we’ve never stocked ½ & ½ (half dry & half sweet!). A medium cider made from up to 14 varieties of apples grown in the Glastonbury Abbey Orchard.

We hope that you enjoy this month’s selection. Watch out for our April 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.
