Westons Cider History
It all started in Herefordshire in 1878
“Henry Weston, the founder of The Company, came to ‘The Bounds’ at Much Marcle, Herefordshire in 1878 and continued the tradition of using fruit from the farm orchards to make cider and perry. Making and drinking cider and perry formed part of the pattern of life in the country. The development of commercial cider making began in 1880 when Henry recognised the threat from overseas imports!
Westons exports its ciders to more than 40 countries worldwide
“Today, our traditionally produced, award winning draught and bottled products are not only available throughout the UK, but are exported to more than 40 countries worldwide. From supermarkets to local convenience stores, resorts, hotels, restaurants, pubs and clubs you will find Westons products, continuing in our heritage of quality.”
Westons produces over 30 different ciders and perries
Westons’ wide range of ciders and perries from cloudy scrumpy through to organic, sparkling vintage, is constantly subject to strict quality control and a policy of innovation keeps us ahead of the competitive cider market. Based at the original farm ‘The Bounds’, Westons Cider employs more than 200 people, produces over 30 different ciders and perries, sells approximately 46 million pints a year!
