Welcome to Loaders Somerset Cider

I’m Paul Loader and I started Loader’s Cider as a hobby in 2015 with my son George and made some very good cider from local unwanted cider apples from old organically managed and often neglected orchards, most of which were planted and supplied the old Taunton Cider co. For a few years, it was a learning curve finding out about the better varieties – we then entered the Bath and West cider competition and won Silver and Bronze in the farmhouse category. Our ciders are of the typical West-Somerset type using higher tannin but slightly lower acid varieties giving the cider a very golden colour and softness on the palate and a good apple taste.
