Description

Somerset Cider Brandy Co Kingsbury Episcopi, Somerset

Julian Temperley produces a series of Somerset cider brandies that  are equivalent to the top Calvados from France and are aged in oak  barrels (sourced from Jerez, Limousin in France and as far afield as  Hungary) for up to twenty plus years. 

A visit to his premises in the  deepest, darkest part of Somerset will take you back to a time  pre-dating commercialism and hi-tech gadgetry. A word of warning if  visiting - take your wellies. The yard is running with apple pulp, juice  and mud, but behind bullet proof glass are two copper stills (Julian’s  pride and joy) used to make this delicious cider brandy.
Julian's  licence, granted by HM Customs in 1989, is the first full cider  distilling license in recorded history. Since then the business has  grown to 150 acres of apple orchards with 40 different variety of apple  grown.
