About company

You might be forgiven for not immediately recognising the brand name as it would seem that Celtic Marches have been one of Herefordshire’s best kept secrets. Nestled in a quiet corner of Herefordshire, a county renowned for its cider production, our single-estate apple cider producer has been milling away peacefully for over 100 years.

All apples used in our ciders are taken from our 200 acre orchards on the family farm in Bishops Frome. We are a self-sustaining cider producer, in a rare position, a result of over 100 years and numerous generations that have dedicated themselves to the orchards and hop fields. This allows for full control over our cider production from tree to glass. Awarded PGI status, you can be assured that only Herefordshire apples are used in our craft cider.

Our bold, strong female branding stands out from the norm and is reflective of the team behind this slick operation. With our large scale production abilities, the female majority team has been selected by Director, Susan Vaughan for their skills, passion for quality and consistent drive for a premium craft cider. Shaking off the traditional approach to cider branding, each of our core range has a woman’s name, all with a different character and taste. The female strength of the company and it’s branding is a far cry from what the cider industry has been used to.

Offering a mix of packaging, from bottles to BIBs, kegs to cans; our strong range of ciders caters for a diverse market. Our ability to follow market trends is not compromising and maintaining traditional values and respect for provenance will always be core.

Celtic Marches proved to be more than your average craft cider during 2018. Firmly planted in the UK’s growing craft cider market, we spent the year collecting awards around the globe; flying out to GLINTCAP USA and across to Japan before finishing back home in Herefordshire to be crowned the counties ‘Best Cider Producer’ in late December. The cider success looks to continue this year with Thundering Molly scooping the Silver Medal at The International Cider Awards 2019.

This season also sees the addition of Holly GoLightly to our range; a low alcohol cider. Coming in at 0.5% ABV, her low alcohol label is not to be underestimated.

Adding another aspect is our Clementine Perry. With the resurgence in perry imminent, the citrus flair is perfectly partnered with the vibrancy of the real pear juice. A truly refreshing perry!
