Cider & produce

We have been selling our fruit direct to customers since the 1920s

In 2022 Blackmoor Estate started to produce cider and apple juice from blends and single varieties of our finest handpicked apples with each having a unique taste and production process.

GOSPEL GREEN – Traditional Method Fine Cyder

For over 30 years Gospel Green Cyder sourced their hand-picked apples from Blackmoor’s orchards so it seemed fitting that in 2022 Gospel Green joined the Blackmoor Estate family. The cider house is less than a mile away from the orchards, ensuring supreme quality and taste.

In common with sparkling wine Gospel Green is made using the double fermentation ‘traditional method’ to produce a delicious and sophisticated sparkling cider. It provides the perfect alternative to champagne, prosecco and sparking wine.

It all started in 1990...

 When James Lane, Gospel Green’s founding father, set out to create England’s first traditional method cider for many years. To this day it is made using hand-picked apples and undergoes a secondary fermentation in bottle with a long maturation on lees in the cellar.

The Brut pairs well with poultry and white meat, bbqs, seafood and pasta as well as cheeses and desserts. Tasting notes: aromatics of elderflower, brioche and green apples.  Crisp with light acidity and a slight earthiness coming through on the palate.  Smooth with a rounded finish and lasting mousse.

The Gospel Green Rosé is a marriage of aged traditional method cider with a dash of English pinot noir offering finesse and subtlety. Tasting notes: with aromatics of wild strawberry and hedgerow berries and a hint of floral Rosehip.  This delicate sparkling rosé cider has a smooth rounded finish with a touch of baked apple. The Rosé is perfect with fish, duck & venison, red fruits and desserts.

BLACKMOOR ORCHARDS - Classic Ciders

Blackmoor Orchard’s Ridges Green is a classic, easy drinking, medium, lightly sparkling cider emphasizing zingy Bramley and is also available in Bag in Box’s and kegs for events, pubs, and restaurants.
