The Watkins-Sully family originate from the picturesque Wye Valley, which dissects the two traditional cider and perry making counties of Monmouthshire and Gloucestershire.

In 2007 they purchase a disused 1920s Cheese factory in the remote rural district of Reidsdale and when they discovered that a cider industry had once flourished at nearby Majors Creek, it seemed only natural to gravitate towards reviving the district’s cider heritage. On further investigation they discovered a wealth of rare and wonderful cider apples and perry pears in remnant orchards throughout the district.
