Orchard Wassail


Celebrate the traditional Wassail  where evil spirits were driven from orchards by an assault of singing, drumming, horns, pots and pans, anything to make the spirits feel unwelcome and so protect the crop for a good harvest later in the year.  You can support traditional orchard producers in a more relaxed way, with this mix of Gloucestershire ciders and perry.

Product Description

Orchard Wassail


  • Jolter Press, Browns Apple Cider, 500ml.  A medium sweet sparkling cider from this Forest of Dean craft cider producer.  Characterful applies to the cider as well as the producers. Check out their link on our producers’ page for a treat of a read.
  • Ragged Stone, Cider, 330mlThis independent producer uses a variety of traditional cider apples including Yarlington Mill, Kingston Black and Herefordshire Redstreak, to produce a light medium sparkling cider.  The apples are sourced from orchards brought back to production on the Bromsberrow estate, just on the edge of Gloucestershire.
  • Severn Cider, Medium Sparkling Perry,  330ml.  This light, sparkling perry is made mainly from Blakeney Red pears. The pears originate from the village of Blakeney, just up the road from Severn Cider on the west bank of the river.
  • Jolter Press, Blakeney Red Perry, 500ml.  Our second perry, from the Jolter Press, provides some wassailing fun comparing the two.  Also made from Blakeney Red Pears, apparently used as dye for soldiers’ khaki uniforms.
  • Chocolate Tree,  Belgian Chocolate Gloucester Old Spot Pig,  55g.  Gloucester Old Spot pigs were traditionally found foraging in orchards, so our chocolate piggy is welcome to join the Wassail.
