A single batch case of 2022 Shelter From The Storm.

Made with fruit from Little Shepherds orchard, which is just over in the next valley and within our parish. It's the closest orchard apart from our own and correspondingly close to our hearts, providing as it does a great blend of varieties that always produces something special. Especially in 2022: we usually sweeten batches from Little Shepherds but year's is so smooth and well finished that adding anything would take something away. So its our first "dry shepherd". How do you keep a shepherd dry? You provide a shelter from the storm... kudos if you spot the culture reference.

Anticipate a big acid hit, smoothly acidic with floral notes balanced with a full mouth feel and a satisfyingly long finish provided by the cider apples. Lot's going on making this a cider to savour.

Orchard Notes

Little Shepherds, Blackboys
A couple of lanes from us is this small private orchard, the hobby of the old owner. It is filled with mature trees, and some fascinating examples of grafting experiments with several trees bearing multiple varieties. When first invited to harvest fruit the orchard was overgrown and hard to access, now its looking in great shape and is home to a wide variety of animals and plants, including pesky deer who chew the young leaves and buds as high as they can reach.

Quarry Farm, near Battle
The cider fruit used in this batch come from Sussex's only commercial grower of cider apples, Quarry Fram. Most of the fruit used to get sent to the west country but we now turn up to pick in the Autumn so some at least stays local - adding rich tannin depth and a long finish to our ciders. They have a farm shop with an excellent cafe, if you happen to be visiting nearby Bodium Castle.

Delivery Information

We ship orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays but please allow up to seven days for delivery once you have ordered. This is because we only work on the Bignose & Beardy part time as we have other jobs the rest of the week. Often we can get an order out quicker, but we can't guarantee it.

Deliveries must be signed for by a person aged 18 or over. Drivers operate a challenge 25 policy: if you appear under 25 you will be asked for photo ID.

If you live really nearby to us in postcode areas (TN22 1,2,4,5) we'll deliver to you for free. Just place your order and if your postcode qualifies free shipping will automatically be added to your order. If you end up paying for shipping by accident we'll refund the shipping and still deliver for free. What's not to love?!

Local customers, select the pick up option on check out to avoid paying delivery charges on this order. You can collect from the Cidery on Fridays or at other times by appointment.

We work with a neighbouring business to ship our goods (as they can get better prices than we can - being bigger than us). The shipping cost is based on the total weight of your order and is automatically calculated at checkout. We can ship most products (up to 20kg) for £10.00 to the UK. Some of our products are lighter and so cost less. It can make sense to add an item to your order to make the most of the shipping costs:
