Purbeck Cider Company is the brainchild of Joe Hartle, son of Peter and Hazel Hartle of Purbeck Ice Cream. Joe returned from travelling New Zealand to his family farm on the Jurassic Coast with the idea of making magnificent farm pressed cider, perry and apple juice as well as continuing his sheep farming.
The ‘Forgotten Orchard’ range is his premium selection.
This medium-dry vintage perry had a year’s ageing before bottling, and has developed a rich depth of flavour. It was awarded three star gold, the highest possible accolade, at the Great Taste awards – no mean feat!
