At the heart of our barrel room is a mighty oak vat we respectfully call The General. When you see it, you’ll know why. It towers imposingly over everyone, and it’s old – its wooden staves are alive with generations of cider history. That’s why we use it to age our best vintage ciders, like this, its 8.4% namesake.

This will give you notes of Seville orange, plum and baked apple and rounds off with a long, warming finish.

Winner of the best tannic cider in the world at the 2023 International Cider Challenge.

Please note that our Bag in Box Cider is still and not sparkling.

“The General showcases medium-sweet baked apples, stuffed with sugar and a little spice. Sip with cheddar and green grapes.”

Susy Atkins The Sunday Telegraph

    1. Andrew Giles

      The best cider I have ever tasted.

    2. Bob K

      I absolutely love this cider. It tastes of proper country apples. Strong, but not too strong – dominated by fruit not alcohol. There is one other widely available cider that compares, but it isn’t as good as The General. There are a few local, very small run ciders that I really like. These are all still. I shall have to try a box of the still version of The General!

      A glorious cider, chilled it’s the very essence of Summer! I’ve drank many ciders now, but this is one of, if not the very best of all. Just the right amount of sweetness for my taste, not too acidic and very fruity, perfect!

    4. Matthew Lee Warrington

      One of, if not the most delicious cider i have ever drank, and i have sampled many! just the right amount of sweetness for my taste, not at all acidic, very fruity!

    5. Russ Smith

      Tasty to its core, this cider is absolutely delicious. A perfect blend of sweetness and acidity with a satisfying aftertaste. I’m a big fan of Devon Red but the General is justifiably my favourite.
