Who we are

We are a small, family-run, orchard-based cidery, producing small-batch, hand-crafted cider in the village of Schefflenz, North Baden, Germany. 

This is what happens when an Irishman moves to a tiny German village! Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for updates.

What is Cider?

Apfelwein, Most, Cider, Cidre, Sidra. They are all regional aspects of the same thing: a refreshing alcoholic drink made by fermenting apple juice. Learn more…

We manage a small orchard that was neglected for many years. We care for the old trees, while rejuvenating the orchard over time. Such spaces are islands of wildlife diversity, which we try to encourage in whatever way we can. An interest in heirloom apples and pears, and cider varieties, drives other aspects of our work, whether bringing in new varieties, or trying to conserve rare local types. Learn more…

Our Cider

Our cider is made in small batches, reflecting the hand-crafted nature of our products. As with any natural product the harvest can be a little different every year, as can the subtle properties of the apples from any given tree. As a result, we place an emphasis on this annual character by stating the vintage of every cider we make. They are generally fermented to dry, as we try to let nature takes its course, with minimal intervention. Learn more…

It all started in 2012, when we bought the harvest rights for about eight apple trees near the graveyard in Kleineicholzheim, an d thought “why not make cider”? Since the we have acquired old orchards and adopted large old pear trees in the surrounding countryside, so what started as a hobby more or less went out of control. Now we balance conservation of old orchards with trying to make the best cider and perries we can, representative of the trees and place. Learn more..
