Thistly Cross

Scotland’s award winning farmhouse ciders

Born out of a passion for making cider in the best possible way and combined with belief in the quality of Scottish produce, came Thistly Cross Cider. Based at the Cider Shed on South Belton Farm, in the heart of the East Lothian countryside and established in 2008 as a collaboration between farmer Ian Rennie, and artist-turned-cidermaker Peter Stuart. Thistly Cross has gained a reputation for making ciders that people rave about.

Thistly Cross is involved in every aspect of making their award-winning Scottish farmhouse cider. From pressing the Scottish apples and strawberries, to achieving the smooth, balanced flavour by fermenting with Champagne yeast then maturing for six months to achieve their rounded, smooth taste.

Pride and passion is invested in every step of the process, from apple to cider, compromising nothing for the taste that makes them so deliciously unique.
