Stan Thatcher, Grandfather to fourth generation Martin Thatcher was born in 1910 and grew up on Mrytle Farm in Somerset. He was a true artisan cider maker and a real cider pioneer, taking over the running of the farm from his father, William, in 1937. The Stan's range includes three of our best loved traditional ciders.



Stan's traditional cider. Mellow from the time it spends in our oak vats, naturally hazy from the bittersweet apples carefully chosen for the blend, and full on flavour.

Big Apple


Crafted from vintage bittersweet apples including Tremlett's, Dabinett and Somerset Redstreak. Thatchers Big Apple is a traditional cider full of flavour and big on personality. Medium dry, this still cider bursts with apple flavours and has a depth of character that only comes from generations of experience.

Cheddar Valley


With its distinctive orange hues, this smooth, robust, naturally cloudy cider is a Somerset tradition. For those who like oak-aged cider medium dry, our cidermakers choose apples including Tremlett's Bitter for its tannins, while Dabinett brings a rich, full body.
