About Us

We are Thistly Cross, Scotland’s leading cider producer. Situated in the beautiful East Lothian coast in one of the sunniest areas of Scotland, we are focused on producing fantastic tasting ciders.

We were founded in 2008 by Peter Stuart, a wild haired and budding cider maker, who was born only 27 miles from where Thistly Cross is made. Our first cider was released in 2009.

To this day, Thistly Cross remains at the forefront of the craft cider movement and we continually strive to ensure each cider is as Deliciously Thistly as the next!
