How's your Strongbow made?

Strongbow Inspiration

From the orchard to your glass, we’re inspired by the power of nature to deliver golden, crisp refreshment in every drop of Strongbow Apple Ciders.

Strongbow's Apples

The apples we use to make Strongbow are specially grown to produce crisp and refreshing ciders. But it’s Strongbow’s mastery of extracting the delicious flavour from these apples that makes your favourite Strongbow cider so special.


After harvesting at their ripest, the apples arrive at the mill where they're washed and crushed. This pulp is pressed to extract juice, which is then concentrated and stored, with the apples' natural sugars acting as a preservative. The concentrated apple juice is then fermented and left to mature, allowing smoother flavours to develop. Depending on the variant of Strongbow you are enjoying, additional flavours such as Elderflower or Ginger may be added. Strongbow Apple Ciders also contain sulphites. Check labels for more details.
