Pressed

Having picked our apples at the peak of their ripeness we promptly press the majority the same day and make sure any left are all pressed within 48 hours. A freshly picked apple has a great flavour and for us it’s all about capturing that.

A lot of apples used for juice are held in cold storage until they are needed, this can be anything from a few weeks to a few months. Fruit continues to ripen once you pick it so some apple juice makers choose to pick their fruit early so that it ripens at a slower speed in storage. This means the fruit never gets that wonderful tree ripened flavour.

Once we’ve pressed our apples we gently pasteurise the juice before storing in air tight containers which keep is as fresh as the day it was pressed.

25% of an apple is air. That’s why they always float!
