A great company is re-born



Our story begins in 1805, when a local farmers co-operative formed to make cider at Norton Fitzwarren, just outside Taunton.

By the early 1900s a churchman was making cider from locally produced apples at the Heathfield Rectory. And in 1911 the Reverend Cornish (for it was he) joined forces with the co-operative to incorporate the “Taunton Cider Company”, set up to produce their now sought-after cider commercially.

After World War I, production of non-sparkling cider continued, using the original recipe and traditional wooden barrels – but the method of the day only allowed for distribution to local public houses in the wider Taunton area.

The Taunton Cider Company effectively disappeared until it was re-registered in 2015 by a group of cider enthusiasts.
