Julian Temperley – Somerset Cider Brandy Company – Somerset Cider Brandy

How Julian got into producing  Somerset Cider Brandy and why he chose this particular product:
The Somerset Cider Brandy Company led the revival in the art of distilling cider brandy and it was a hard battle for Julian Temperley who eventually was granted a distilling license in 1989. Cider has been brewed at Pass Vale Farm for the past 150 years which is understandable as the area in South Somerset has the perfect climate and soil conditions, considered the best for growing cider apples. Julian cares for every detail from the way the apples are grown to the barrels that the cider brandy is fermented in. The quality and taste of the apples, all sourced from their own orchards or local Somerset growers, is essential and he makes sure all are grown without spraying them with fertilizers or insecticides. The journey the apples go through to produce cider and then cider brandy is long and requires a lot of patience but the incredible and unique taste of the final product is a testament to the passion and experience Julian puts into every bottle he produces.

Products that Julian is offering:
Julian offers a range of Somerset Cider Brandy from a minimum of 3 years maturing up to 20 years. He also offers several other alchoholic products which are all available to buy online.
