For more than 170 years The Showering family have been making award winning ciders in Shepton Mallet. From winning Gold at the 1950 Brewers Exhibition to Gold at the 2019 Somerset Cider  Championships & the Royal Cornwall Show and 1st prize at the South West Cider Association. 

The accolades continue a long tradition of award winning ciders stretching back over 70 years.

Our apples are from a single award-winning orchard, located less than 7 miles from our Cider Mill. Exclusively dedicated to cider apple growing by a long-established expert horticulturalist using long, slow gentle fermentations. Principally late season Dabinetts, an aromatic Somerset variety, rich in tannins, considered by many as the premier cider apple.

Our ciders DO NOT contain artificial sweeteners.

At Showerings, we like to make cider the right way! This means that all of our cider ranges are naturally Gluten Free. Our cider range starts off using 100% pressed apple juice and is fermented using naturally gluten-free yeast.

As Showerings Cider is made from apples that are naturally gluten-free and is made by fermenting apple juice with yeast and sugar, it is a safe drink for anyone with a gluten sensitivity. Unlike brewer’s yeast which is a by-product of beer brewing, the yeast used for fermenting cider is naturally gluten-free.

Our cider is both gluten-free and vegan friendly.

The ABV of Showerings Triple Vintage cider is 6.8%.

We are pleased to say that we do not test any of our products on animals.

We do not specify a best before date. Cider is like wine and keeps well for many years.
