Westons Cider

Taking local global. Food and Drink.

Westons Cider is a Herefordshire based cider & perry producer, producing over 30 different ciders and perries and employing more than 200 people.

The business was started at its current location on a farm in Much Marcle in 1880 by Henry Weston. Henry started on a small scale using fruits from the farm orchards and this tradition has continued until the present day. The business has grown considerably and is now selling approximately 46 million pints a year and has a turnover of £38 million. Westons Cider is not only available throughout the UK but is also exported to more than 40 countries worldwide.

“We are one of a host of forward thinking, innovative food & drink producers in the county which benefit from a range of networking initiatives and events aimed at promoting locally distinctive food & drink. Herefordshire is the natural home of global cidermaking and Westons is proud to be an integral part of an industry that, in an otherwise challenging economy, is continuing to innovate, grow and export around the world. Being based in such a beautiful and picturesque county is just one of the many benefits to running a business in Herefordshire, as cider makers, where else would we be?” Matthew Langley, Brand Manager
