Cider from the orchards of suburbia.
Our story of London Glider Cider
Welcome to London Glider, rhyming slang for cider. We take apples from the gardens of suburbia and turn it into award-winning cider and perry.
Many London gardens have apple trees but most of the fruit is wasted. It falls to the ground, rots, ruins lawns and attracts wasps. In 2010 we decided to do something about this waste of a fantastic natural resource. We leafleted our neighbours offering to collect unwanted apples (or pears) to make cider. The response was overwhelming.
The First Batch
We collected 750 kilos of apples and pears and pressed this fruit to produce the first batch of London Glider – a clear, strong, still cider with a well-balanced fruity flavour and clean apple finish.
