Nearly 30 years ago Barrie Gibson and his wife Geraldine began to make their artisan, Cornish cider. They pressed by hand the apples from their six trees and those they received from friends, paying their willing band of contributors with bottles of cider. In 2012, confident that they had mastered the process, they went commercial and established Fowey Valley Cidery in a beautiful orchard in Golant, on the banks of the river Fowey in Cornwall. Working in an old out-building, with a small and dedicated team, they took three years to perfect their flagship product; a multi award-winning, dry 7.5% champagne-style cider.
Today, our product range has expanded, the team has grown, and we have moved into bigger premises. A lot has changed since those first bottles thirty years ago, though Barrie's pride and passion in producing artisan cider and distilling exceptional spirits is prevalent with every sip.
