Beers from Gaymer Cider currently at the Mayor:
Gaymer Cider Company is the second largest cider maker in the UK and indeed the world. The portfolio of brands includes many of the major brands. Blackthorn Cider is the No. 2 cider brand, and the original keg cider. Other major brands include Gaymer’s Olde English and Diamond White. Recent brands launched include Gaymers original, Orchard Reserve and a packaged version of Addlestones.
There is also a range of different ciders to accommodate the breadth of cider styles and the regional preferences that exist. These brands include Red C, Special VAT and Natch.
The cider operation of Gaymer Cider Company has seen very significant investment. In the four years to 2000, in excess of £35m was invested in the Cider Mill at Shepton Mallet in Somerset to make it the most modern, efficient and flexible cider production facility in the world.
There has also been major investment in the planting of 2,000 acres of new orchards (or some 750,000 new trees) to secure the English apples to make the ciders. The cost of the planting scheme was in excess of £3m and means that the cider mill now regularly presses in excess of 30,000 tonnes of fruit each season.
The focus of Gaymer Cider Company is excellent and consistent product quality across a range of brands that match consumer preferences and the occasions when they enjoy cider.
