Producers of Superior Cyders & Perries
Minchew's Real Cyder & Perry has been produced commercially
since 1993 and they now have the world's largest range
of single variety Cyders and Perries.They are committed
to producing the highest quality Cyders and Perries
through natural methods, without the aid of artificial
assistance, additives or chemicals.
All fruit is hand-picked, hand-washed, milled in an
old-fashioned scratter and pressed on an old stone slab,
which has run with the juice of apples and pears for
over a century, and then allowed to ferment naturally
in oak barrels. Only when fermentation has naturally
ceased and is judged to be mature, is it then bottled;
which accounts for its unique characteristics and the
many awards they have won.
Situated in the lower Severn valley, between the Cotswolds
and the Malvern Hills, Ashchurch is a village beneath
Bredon Hill, all the fruit is sourced within this fertile
area. Several varietal Cyders and Perries are produced,
along with some distinctive blends. Minchews Cyder and
Perries only use traditional varieties. At present we
stock the following from Mr Keven Minchew , but they
are plenty more to sample.
