Our Products

Dunkertons Cider have been making organic cider and perry for over 35 years.  Our drinks range includes both blended and single varieties that are made using traditional cider apples with names like Court Royal, Foxwhelp, or perry pears called Judge Amphlett, Thorn, and, Moorcroft. We make our drinks in harmony with the environment and we have been awarded Soil Association certification status for all our ciders and perry as well as for our orchards. Our drinks are made using pure pressed juice from the organic fruit harvested in our own orchards or from the organic orchards of local farms.

Our Process

We believe that our job as organic cider makers is to let the apples and pears do the talking; which is why we have crafted the art of blending different varieties to create unique drinks like our aptly named Black Fox, a medium dry cider with a bittersweet bite that creeps up on you. Or the single varieties of Browns, Breakwells or our Kingston Black named after the famous but now rare cider apple. Take a look at our video to see how we make our award winning drinks – crafted from bud to bottle. 

I know you probably get this allot but I just want to say I love you Dunkertons. I’ve drunk a lot of Cider and Perry in my time from all around the country but yours is the best! Especially your organic Perry. Don’t ever change or stop pressing! All the Best to you and your Team. Kind Regards Adrian

Just had to tell you, sitting here drinking a bottle of Black Fox and thinking “This is the best cider in the world bar none”!

I used to come and buy from the shop when visiting my mate who lived just up the road, next to Sandy Owens. Now he has moved I buy it from Waitrose, bit of a game getting to Waitrose as they open Saturday morning and clear the shelf, if I don’t someone else always does. It’s the only one to be sold out every day.

Just love the stuff!

Dunkertons Dry Organic is a cider that you simply can’t refuse. Gently sparkling and slightly hazy it takes your tastebuds on a wonderful journey. First the tannins and bittersweet apples are taking you by surprise to then gently make way for a more bittersharp taste that stays with you forever…. until you take another sip 🙂 And above it all, the flavour is unmistakable Dunkertons. The dry cider to rule them all.


I have always loved Dunkertons cider but had never tried any other than the Premium, but last night I tried the Black Fox  and will be buying it again very soon. Fantastic cider, not too sweet or dry and a lovely fizz that’s not overpowering. A must try cider for any cider lover.


You make wonderful cider. Being a loving admirer of your Organic Dry (sold by friends of mine in a lunchroom/cafe in Amsterdam), today I bought, and am now drinking your vintage 30 years celebration. So lovely! Now please don’t be offended when I compare it to my experiences with really good Breton or Normandic dry ciders. That is where I taste a vibrant connection, very much more than with the Dry you offer, which is much drier than any ‘Brut’ I have tasted. I just returned from Fontainebleau and even there excellent French produce can be had. So I am happy we have some very forward (and luckily backward, haha!) thinking importers in The Netherlands, so we all can enjoy the fruits of your mastery of an ancient craft.
