CHAMPION CIDER

In 2011 our cider 'Hard Core' won the CAMRA Gold Medal Champion Cider of Britain. This cider was the first cider that we had made and contained fruit only from the 2009 harvest. 

 

Welcome to the Virtual Orchard website! 

We are a small, independent producer of  traditional still cider, cider vinegar, mead and apple brandy using locally sourced fruit and honey. We pride ourselves on crafting quality products from our beautiful location by the side of the Grand Union Canal in Old Wolverton, on the edge of the new city of Milton Keynes

STILL TIME TO EXPANDVelocity... our new stllVelocity... our new stll

At the end of 2014 we got ourselves a little sister company called Wharf Distillery. Co-located with the cidery in Old Wolverton, alongside the Grand Union Canal, Wharf Distillery now produces our acclaimed English Apple Brandy and will soon be creating malt spirits, milk vodka (yes, you read that right!), as well as eau de vie from hedgerow fruits and an artisan rum.

The still, named Velocity was acquired with the help of a SEMLEP grant and was put into production in December with our brandy being ready for Christmas. The next spirit (available now) is based on a blend of malts from Concrete Cow Brewery and is to be called Sacred Cow. Read more here (page 5).
