IMG_20130906_190723Firstly, have you checked out our prolific facebook page which features news, announcements, photos and all manner of musings from Thistly Cross HQ, and those that enjoy our cider. We love getting feedback and hearing your ideas so do get in touch.

We also have a regularly updated twitter page, so send us a tweet! All news, adventures and even some business meetings (or as we like to call them, sociable cidery drinks in a publican’s bar) are scheduled this way.

If you have any queries or need further information on anything at all, drop us an email at info@thistlycrosscider.co.uk, call us on 07960962510, or you can even drop us a note to our Cidershed which is based on a farm:

The Cidershed, South Belton Farm, Nr. Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland, EH42 1RG

Directions:- The Cidershed is located just a stones throw from the A1. Take the Stenton / Pressmenan Wood exit off of Thistly Cross roundabout (this is the first roundabout after leaving Edinburgh (approx 20 minutes in a tail wind) and if travelling up from the South, is the next roundabout after Asda).

Once off the A1, drive for 500m and take the first left hand turn before the cottages. Drive up the concrete farmtrack – there will be pantiled stables on the right. Continue on and the Cidershed will be straight ahead.

Please be aware that Thistly Cross Cidershed is a place of work ( 9 -5, Monday to Friday) and is based on a working farm. There is a steady flow of traffic in and around the farmyard – so please be careful! However, if you happen to have an out of hours enquiry, it is likely that there may be someone about to deal with your question or delivery.

And please remember that The Cidershed is not currently set up for touring or general retail purposes, but our neighbours at The Store/Belhaven Fruit Farm (open seasonally) and Belhaven Smokehouse, stock a good selection of the Thistly Cross Cider range, and have the necessary card facilities for direct sales.apple group outside (large)

Apple Donations:- We’re always looking for good quality Scottish apples to make into juice, and our delicious award-winning cider, so if you have any unwanted or unloved fruit, please get in touch. As long as your apples are in good, relatively clean condition (not crab apples), we’ll be interested. Remember, happy, healthy apples make good cider; apples in bad condition, make bad cider. Further details about picking and storage are here.

In exchange for your apples: we offer a 500ml bottle for every 10kg or (the equivalent in 330 ml bottles); apple juice in return at 25% of the weight of the fruit brought in, in 20L cider boxes pasteurised with a 1 year shelf life (you can have this in 5L boxes if you prefer (with an additional cost of £1 extra per box), or in bottles (£0.38p extra per bottle)); we can buy the apples directly from you, or offer you a combination of all of these options. Contact us at the office to discuss.

  1. Dear Ian, Peter and The Thistly Cross team. My father Gordon has know Ian for a number of years and told me about this great new venture. Congratulations on the early success of your great range of ciders and on your recent entry into the US market. Working in the drinks business myself (responsible for Edrington’s Scotch whisky brands in Africa), I know how rewarding it is to finally break down those barriers to entry and to watch consumers enjoy your product thousands of miles from its source. I wish you every success and will watch your development with keen interest as an enthusiast of all things Scottish. Kind regards, Keith Bonnington

  2. Hello there… I managed to get some of your Cider on Saturady whilst shopping at Total Wine in Seattle… I was amazed being a Scot and proudly bought 6 bottles. I hope to come and viist next time I am viisting my parents and friends in Edinburgh.

    Best of luck for 2013.

  3. Hey there, we just open a bag-in-a-box of Whisky Cask and we’re excited about pouring it and serving it at Finn’s Irish Pub in beautiful downtown Ellsworth, Maine USA. It is available retail not too far from us at Global Beverage, also in Ellsworth, ME. I’d love to be able to add those to your list of places folks can get your product. Thanks- Lorena Stearns, Finn’s

  4. I’ve just had a lovely pint of Thistly Cross Ginger in “The pigs ears” a small bar restaurant in Richmond, London.

    Are there any pubs in Surrey or near Weybridge that sell Thistly Cross Ginger?

  5. Hello!
    Your cider is amazing!! I live in New Jersey, in the States and its very hard to find a good cider. Luckily, the local liquor shop always has these stocked.

    Ive only tried the original (one with the blue label) but am eager to try more.

    Im seriously considering getting on a plane soon and visiting. Please make sure you have a huge variety that day. Ill bring sandwiches.

    In the meantime, do you know of any locations in the New York City area that stock your stuff? Or in Winchester, UK? (My husband is heading home for a visitn next month and maybe i can add these to the list of goodies to bring back).

    You guys rock!!
    Aly
