Apple Juice

BrynCocynAppleJuiceLabelFrontWe grow twenty varieties of apples, for picking from August to November – early apples are to eat straight from the tree and late apples for storage through the Winter. We’ve recently added some cider varieties for the future. Here’s a list, beginning with the earliest –

DESSERT APPLES – George Cave, Discovery, Tydeman’s Early Worcester, Merton Beauty – early, and then as the year progresses, Bardsey, Ribston Pippin, Yellow Ingestrie, Red Windsor, Rosemary Russet, Egremont Russet, Herefordshire Russet, Adam’s Pearmain, Ashmead’s Kernel, Rajka, Resi and Court Pendu Plat.

COOKING APPLES – Bramley, Golden Noble, Grenadier and King Edward VII.
CIDER APPLES – Dabinett, Harry Masters Jersey and Yarlington Mill

Juice has proved a lovely way to conserve apples in a delicious and useful way. We press, bottle and pasteurise on the farm. We have both single variety juices and blends. We can also press apples for friends and neighbours.

Currently (November 2019), so far, we’ve had five pressings from the 2019 apple harvest. These are from early maturing varieties, and so there are plenty more to come through Autumn and into Winter.

The First Press – Mostly sweet Discovery apples, but with a few Grenadier (cooker) to add a little sharpness.

Enlli – The mysterious Bardsey Island apple. The proper name for Bardsey Island is Ynys Enlli. – Sweet, with a hint of romantic maritime history!

Merton Beauty & Rajka – Freshly sweet… 

Yellow Ingestrie – Sweet with a hint of pineapple.

Ribston Pippin – Sweetish with a depth of flavours. 

75 cl. bottle – £3.00 plus VAT – £3.60

    A beautiful bottle of Rosemary Russet has been given me as a Get Well Soon gift…I feel better already! What a perfectly smooth and delicious glassful, depth of flavour and fresh as a daisy. I know that this was bought from the village shop in Pwll Glas but I was wondering what other outlets you supplied. My own local would be worth a visit, if you haven’t already been: Llanrhaeadr Post Office/Village Shop, a great little store that is much used and admired by locals and everyone who travels the Ruthin-Denbigh road. Worth a try! X

      Thanks very much Stephanie – it means a lot to receive such messages and also thanks very much for the suggestion – we’ll certainly try Llanrhaeadr Post Office.
      We do have apple juice stocked in John Jones & sons, the butchers on the Denbigh side of Ruthin and also in the two Denbigh butchers shops – J H Jones & Co and Daniel Morris Butchers Ltd, both at the bottom of Vale Street, Denbigh.
