Our Story: Passion for the environment from the start!
Dunkertons began in 1980 with the pioneering spirit and vision of our founders, Ivor & Susie Dunkerton. They both lived in London, Ivor was a producer for the BBC and Susie worked in London theatres. They were both passionate about organic products and big cider drinkers so decided to leave the city life and escape to the countryside.
They bought some land in Herefordshire with some cider apple trees and started to experiment. Their vision was to craft organic ciders in harmony with the environment to support the natural ecosystem. They set about making deep flavored organic ciders without any concentrates or chemicals, instead working with what mother nature had to offer.
Dunkertons was the first cider company whose orchards and cider production were certified to Soil Association standards. We are the only fully organic soil association certified cider company in the UK. Dunkertons hold three Soil Association licenses for our orchards, growers and production.
All our ciders are naturally gluten free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
