Sam and Beccy of Wilding Cider grow organic vegetables and make cider near Chew Magna in Somerset. All fruit comes from unsprayed and unfertilised traditional orchards. Naturally, only wild yeasts are used, with no filtering and no additives whatsoever.


Reasons to be Cheerful is made from a blend of fruit from three orchards, both cider apples and dessert varieties. The cider is racked to retain some of the natural sugars, resulting in an extremely drinkable fruity cider with some robust tannins & fresh acidity to balance the sweetness.
