Local hand picked Apples
Ilmington, Warwarickshire, United-Kingdom
Grumpy Frog Cider is derived from the location of the original orchards from which these apples were collected ‘Grump Street’ and ‘Frog Lane’ both in the North Cotswolds village of Ilmington which is renowned for its huge variety of apples from very many orchards. The story began in 2014 when they decided to do something useful with the glut of apples from the fruit trees in the village gardens and made the first fermentation of cider. Neighbours were invited to a party to celebrate the finished product the following year the project grew as locals brought their spare apples to add to the mix. There was too much cider for private consumption so the capacity was bottled and given the name of ‘Grumpy Frog’. By 2016 the harvest had increased and they produced 1600 litres of cider. Soon they were granted a Distillers’ license, and bought a very beautiful traditional copper still and began the exciting process of developing an Apple Brandy THE SPIRIT OF ILMINGTON.
