This month we’re meeting Alex, the Charrington of Charrington’s. He’s used his life-long experience of growing and selling apples and the knowledge he’s gained to bring a fresh approach to cider making and redefine what you can do with a humble (yet perfect) apple. He’s taken time out from the orchards to answer a few questions… Q – How long have you been farming? A – Pretty much all my life. My father bought the far

World Cider Day! This is a celebration not to be missed. Make sure you raise a glass (or more) in honour of the best day of the year for cider, as it is globally toasted. Remember, June 3rd – all day. Make sure you have a case of Queen of Cox – a majestic, best-cider-award-winning, lightly sparkling cider made for a day like this!
The Pantiles Gin and Jazz Festival was a great success last year and this year looks good too, especially as we’ll be there!

We were delighted to be the focus of KMTV’s Made in Kent feature this week and have shared the video for you. It was great to see the trees in blossom and we think Grant did a brilliant job conveying all that is good about Charrington’s.

Our Blossom Walk was very much a rushed affair this year. Unpredictable as ever, the trees blossomed at an alarming rate over the Easter weekend and we were just able to send a Facebook message out to all of our followers for a Blossom Walk on the Monday. Given the short notice, we had a good turnout and it was great fun. There were lots of children this year which is really pleasing as this is an important part of t

We’ve also welcomed George Shrubsole, Nick Maxfiel
Our Earl’s Reserve vintage russet cider is fabulous mulled with our Red Peppercorn and Hibiscus infusions. Ideal while we’re still experiencing some cold days. However, it’s also delicious mulled and then chilled for a spicy iced cocktail on warmer days!
