Wyatt’s Craft Cider is a small family business located in Bradfield, West Berkshire, whose very first pressing was in November 2006.
They collect and utilise windfall apples from local gardens and private orchards that would otherwise be surplus to requirements and mill, press and ferment the juice. Fermentation occurs naturally and the cider can be ready for drinking after six months, although Wyatt’s Craft Cider is matured for up to a year before bottling.
Since 2011 Wyatt’s have contract bottled their cider where it is further processed to produce a lightly sparkling, easy drinking medium cider. The main cider is called Berkshire Gold and is a blend of many common dessert and culinary apples such as Cox, Russet, Worcester, and Bramley.
They also occasionally produce a speciality cider made from an unknown variety of cider apple which grow at Douai Abbey called Abbey Gold. A limited edition of this cider will hopefully be available in 2017.
Wyatt’s Craft Cider have no plans for world domination; from 2006 to 2016 they have just aimed to produce a genuinely local product for discerning drinkers.
