Dorset Nectar is an orchard farm run as a family business by Oliver, Penny and their 5 children. As well as producing award winning artisan cider and natural apple cider vinegar they have pastured hens roaming between the apple trees in the orchard producing free range organic eggs.
Dorset Nectar’s Real cider is naturally fermented from 11 varieties of West Country cider apples grown on a family run farm, from Brown’s apples to Dabinett, Coate Jerseys, Michelin, Tremletts Bitters, Taylor’s, Chesil Jerseys, Sweet Coppin, Harry Master’s Jersey, Yarlington Mills and Porter’ Perfection to name a few. The sun ripened apples are whole crushed and pressed at the orchard’s cider barn near Bridport, then patiently nurtured to create a smooth, delicious cider that is fruity in taste and bursting with flavour. To retain the crisp and fresh character of the cider, nearing the end of fermentation, they rack their ciders into new barrels, ensuring a wealth of flavour. Natural, wild yeasts are used to craft these unique ciders and the apples are grown without pesticides; the cider is certified Organic, using no sulphites.
