In 1728, Clement Chevallier planted the first large-scale cyder orchards in Suffolk. Clement nurtured his trees, then pressed and blended his apples, pioneering a new standard for British fine cyder. Almost 300 years on, we’re still producing unparalleled cyder at the original Aspall Cyder House.
Today, we grow 46 different varieties of apple on the estate. Our oldest trees date back to the 1900’s, and the youngest are barely a couple of years old. Many of our ‘children’ are grown from the budwood of the finest trees already on the estate; varieties that are no longer available commercially yet they make the very finest cyders. The Aspall estate is crammed with diverse wildlife – hooting owls, shy red, fallow, roe and muntjac deer, spotted flycatchers, a vast panoply of moths and butterflies – they are a glorious, wonderful haven and define our cyders, our vinegars and our ethos.
