All our ciders and perries are made using local cider and perry fruits from Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire. This was recognised in May of 2003 when Orchard’s Cider and Perry Co was the first cider maker in Gloucestershire to be awarded with a PGI certificate (Protection of Geographical Indication Certificate of Conformity) by Herefordshire Environmental Health & Trading Standards Service for Gloucestershire Perry, Gloucestershire Dry, Medium and Sweet Cider.

What is PGI?

a) A Geographical Indication means the name of an area used to describe a food originating from that area, having the quality and characteristics attributable to that area and / or to production in that area.

b) Protected means the name is legally protected against misuse, imitation, false or misleading indication, even if qualified by terms such as style

c) It is similar to terms such as Appellation Controlee used to describe wine.

The cider apples and perry pear fruit used, (the majority of which is hand picked), comes from local orchards which have old traditional "full standard" trees. The fruit is sorted and washed before pressing; in addition the perry fruit is macerated. The juice is then allowed to ferment either on its own or with some assistance, depending on the volume and/or type of juice. After fermentation the juice is racked off into fresh stainless steel tanks or oak barrels and allowed to mature.
