About The Beard & Sabre Cider Company.

The Beard & Sabre Cider Company was founded in 2015, it is our mission to redefine craft cider and lead the craft cider revolution.

Craft Beer saw a boom, why was cider left behind?

They believe that cider needs to re-invent its image – the traditional producer name isn't appealing to the modern consumer.

It's their goal to combine tradition with vision to create incredible British drinks.

Unlike beer, the craft cider industry is very fragmented – often producers do not support each-other and prefer to attack other producer's methods.

They believe there's a cider for everyone and all styles of cidermaking should be encouraged.
