For more than a hundred years the Thatcher family has been quietly perfecting the magic that turns apples into cider. Each generation has passed on their secrets of cider making, like encouraging bees to pollinate apple blossom, or looking after the 150 year old oak vats where the cider matures.
Caring about cider runs in the family and people who love cider can taste the care that goes into every single drop.
As fourth generation cider maker, Martin keeps an eye on the whole operation, from the orchards and cidermaking through to how and where we sell our ciders.
Thatcher is focused on building a sustainable business for future generations and they are not content with four generations but looking ahead to the fifth generation; they have been planting trees from an early age just like their father and grandfather.
