[Editor's Note June 2003: I've intentionally left this page as it is for the time being, until the alphabetical list is more or less up to date. You are advised to see the alphabetical list for the most up-to-date information meanwhile - Ed.]

*** Please note that this page has been superseded by the combined List of UK Cider & Perry Makers, and you are referred to that for the latest information. ***
*** This page will not be updated in future, but is left here for reference purposes - PMG 23 /07/2003 ***

This document is as accurate as I can make it, however I accept no liability for the contents. If you wish to add or alter any entry, please contact .

The majority of the cider and perry makers listed below welcome visits from the public and will sell cider to you direct. In fact some of them do not sell their cider anywhere else other than direct from the cider mill. Please note the many of the cider makers are also working farmers producing other crops. Some will have facilities for visiters, others will not. Opening hours will vary throughout the year. Always telephone first to avoid disappointment.

Note: (A) before an entry indicates a Category A cider maker.
