Nestled in the Fauxquets Valley in the heart of the Channel Islands countryside and with distant views of the English Channel, is the home of Rocquette Cider.
The Channel Islands have long been intrinsically linked with apple growing and has an accomplished cider heritage. As early as the 16th Century production thrived and cider, recognised for its premium nature, was exported in large quantities to England from across the Channel Islands.
In 1998, they set out to re-establish the industry and the cider making tradition was reborn through the Rocquette Cider Company. Having planted 3000 trees in the picturesque fields surrounding the family home, production blossomed and have now added an additional 2,000 trees to our mature orchards. New tanks and state of the art equipment have also been invested in to enable greater cider production to quench the demands of the thirsty locals in the Channel Islands and beyond.
Today the modern orchards still enjoy the temperate climate, fresh Atlantic breezes and sun filled days so that the heritage of exceptional cider making can be continued.
Rocquette Cider has grown up as a well-loved, local, organic, family run business and remains true to its roots. They still live at the farm in its picturesque setting amongst the orchards, and the team works from the offices in the barn.
The very purest of traditional cider farm values are truly embraced at the Rocquette Cider Company, and are proud that the care and attention to detail shine through in all of their products. That’s why we’re sure you’ll love Rocquette Cider as much as we do.
