What better way to welcome in March - and what is starting to feel like Spring - than a showcase of fantastic Welsh cider. March in Wales is symbolised by the daffodil (St David's Day is on 1st March), gambolling lambs and the singing of the Rugby crowd at the Principality.

And do they make some belting cider too - from those close to the Herefordshire border (OK, we did cheat with one on the wrong side too), to the beautiful South Wales Valleys and the southern plains of the Vale of Glamorgan. So here goes - the Welsh Cider Case (Seidr Crefft Cymru) contains:

Hallets Medium - 6%, Crumlin, South Wales Valleys

An easy drinking traditional cider, blended from the best varieties on the farm, and sweetened with Dabinett for a lightly sparkling balanced cider. Perfect served chilled.

Vale Cider 'Serious Scrumpy' - Medium, 6.3%, Vale of Glamorgan

The team at Vale carefully craft lovely blends from the 53 apple varieties in their heritage orchards just West of Cardiff. 'Serious Scrumpy' is their best-seller and despite its name, it is lightly sparkling and has a real depth of flavour. 

Apple County Yarlington Mill SV - Medium Sweet, 5.5%, Monmouthshire

Ben is making some cracking cider in the Monnow Valley, on the fertile terraced slopes facing the border. He produces some lovely Single Variety ciders, and Yarlington Mill is one of our favourites. With a unique, wine-like profile, the rich brandy aroma is followed by a deep mellow flavour with a creamy finish. A real gem.

Williams Brothers 'Splanky' - Medium, 6.9%, Caerphilly, South Wales Valleys

Rich and Pete Williams started with just 5 litres of production in the early noughties, and now have what they refer to as a "hobby gone mad". They certainly know how to make a great tasting cider from local apples too, and 'Splanky' is one of their best.

Gwynt Y Ddraig Dabinett - Medium-Dry, 6%, Pontypridd, South Wales Valleys

A full-juice Dabinett single varietal from The Welsh Cider & Perry Company, better known as Gwynt Y Ddraig. Produced from apples grown in their extensive orchards - where they've been perfecting the blend since starting out in 2001 - this Dabinett has a lovely dry finish.

Ty Gwyn 'Kingston Black' - Medium Dry, 6%, Hereford borders

OK, so we cheated a bit... Ty Gwyn is Welsh owned and Welsh named but made just over the border in furthest West Herefordshire - but we just had to share it with you! Alex has great attention to detail and presses every apple himself. You will taste the result of years of passion in this well-rounded example of Kingston Black.

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.
