Teifi Crush is a golden, scrumptiously appley cider made in
small batches on our farm in West Wales.
We only use the best apples sourced from our orchards and
local suppliers, selected for the right mix of sweetness,
acidity and tannins necessary for the perfect pint.
The apples are hand harvested , sorted cleaned and stored
until they are perfectly ripe. They are then pulped (“scratted”
in the trade) using a wonderful old brute of a machine that
has been crushing apples for well over one hundred years.
The pulp is then stored in vats for a day to allow all the
goodness and flavour to seep into the juice and then the pulp
is pressed the old fashioned way using a hand-operated oak
Juice is pumped into the vats, where nothing is added.
Natural slow and flavoursome yeasts get to work through the
cold winter days until, their work completed, the cider is ready
to drink in spring.
This is true craft cider, made by hand with skill and care. It’s
not rough farm scrumpy and it’s not apple flavoured alco-pop.
We think it’s how cider should be – how it used to be.
