Our Ciders 

 

The slow fermentation so our cider captures the natural flavours and aromas with a fresh apple taste. In the New Year, this changes when the malolactic fermentation starts in Spring, giving the final intense refreshing flavours.

30 litres Keg

20 litres bag in box.

Downham Cider Story.

Our aim is to create a traditional crafted cider made from 100% locally grown apples slowly matured for a great taste. 

In 2014 we decided to take a big step and bring our traditional crafted cider to the public in the form of Downham Tickle. Downham Tickle was brought to life in the Railway Arms Pub in 2013 with help from Ian the landlord who encouraged me to make more cider and Sophie my daughter who came up with the name.  Our cider is only made once a year in the Autumn when the apples have ripened and as luck would have it, 2014 was a good year. Since that time we have developed a variety of ciders. We continue to only use locally sourced apples. We don’t add anything else in our cider. We simply press the apples and let wild yeasts work its magic and allow the crisp, fresh and refreshing flavour to develop.
