Dowding’s blended ciders can vary depending on which varieties of apples and proportions have been used. Generally, blends will include some of the following apples – Yarlington Mill – Sweet Coppin – Dabinett – Harry Masters Jersey – Browns – Bramleys or other cooking apples.

Dowding’s cider, is named Tower Brue because of the panoramic views across open farmland to King Alfred’s Tower from the orchards, and a tributary to the River Brue that runs alongside.

We take pride in our cider, being an artisan product, and created from 100% apple juice. Many people that we speak to are surprised to learn that the legal requirement for cider is only 35% apple juice. This involves a lot of corner cutting and is a path that we have chosen not to take.
