DISCOVER THE ART OF CIDER™ THIS HARVEST SEASON, WITH KENTISH PIP

Kentish Pip, one of the most exciting new cideries to emerge in the UK in the last decade, is inviting consumers to make the most of the apple harvest season and experience The Art of CiderTM from tree to glass.

The family-run craft cider business combines traditional skill with modern innovative thinking, taking consumers on a journey of discovery into the world of craft cider making. While remaining true to its heritage, Kentish Pip is a brand that plays far from the rule book, continuously evolving to meet the demands of the contemporary cider-drinker looking for exciting flavours and quality craft brands.

Produced by the Mount Family who have been growing apples for over 100 years and producing high-quality cider since 2012, Kentish Pip ciders are distinguished by apple variety and cutting-edge production techniques which all take place on site at Woolton Farm, near Canterbury in Kent. The farm was founded by Herbert Mount, who started growing fruit over a century ago. Fast forward to today and it has diversified into a thriving mixed crop farm and successful drinks business.

Sam Mount, Managing Director at Kentish Pip comments: “We believe Cider is a story of people, places, variety, and discovery. We’re a small team with a big ambition who want to challenge the status quo, push aside the mediocre and reignite the nation’s love affair with cider.

Cider making is fundamentally an art and the activities that take place in our cidery at Woolton Farm, particularly at maturation stage, are microscopic. We want cider to be consumed in a way that promotes that understanding, and above all, to be enjoyed! We’re so excited to share our story and passion with our customers. We invite them to experience our craft from the orchard to the finished product, and fall in love with the good stuff, one step at a time”.

All Kentish Pip ciders are made on site and have a distinctive regional style made from a high percentage of cider, dessert and culinary apples. With just a stone’s throw between the orchards and the cidery, the fruit-forward ciders are made with the best fresh English apples, contain a whopping 75 – 100% of real fruit juice and can be ready within only a few months of pressing.
