Our Story Thumbnail

Our own orchards make up over 350 acres of cropping apples, making us one of the largest growers in the UK and Ireland.

Years of passion and perseverance in growing and processing apples have enabled us to develop unique fermentation methods in mastering the art of apple cider vinegar. This led to the creation of our fresh, naturally sweet tasting organic apple cider vinegar, Natural Umber.

Natural Umber launched in January 2018 and it turned out to be an incredible year!

In May 2018, Ulster University independently blind taste-tested Natural Umber organic apple cider vinegar against the top three selling brands. Natural Umber came out top in every single category.

In August 2018, we were awarded the coveted 3 Great Taste stars from the Guild of Fine Food in London and went on to win the Golden Fork for Northern Ireland. Judges commented on the bold and well-rounded flavour of Natural Umber, stating it is “Smooth and easy to drink with water”, and has a “syrupy viscosity, sweet apple character and a sharpness”.

Following on from our success at the Great Taste Awards, Natural Umber is now available from over 100 independent stockists across the UK and Ireland.

You can also buy Natural Umber here on our website, with free UK delivery, or on Amazon.
