About the producer:

Made by director/wine and cider maker Simon Day who grew up on an English vineyard and has 25 years of experience, producing award winning wines and ciders in the UK and abroad.

Tasting Note:

Very powerful, big palate with intense flavours of apricot, quince and a hint of soft caramel. Sweetness, acidity and a long, soft finish, perfectly balanced. Enjoy as an aperitif, partner with foie gras or pâté, with blue cheese or chocolate based desserts. A unique product.


Dragon Orchard is located in the heart of apple growing countryside in Herefordshire and has been in the family since 1887. It benefits from fertile Herefordshire clay and loam soils and is protected from harsh winds by the surrounding hills. It is an accredited LEAF farm (Linking Environment and Farming) and the farmhouse has been awarded for its sustainability.


The juice of handpicked, late harvested Conference and Comice Pears is filtered, frozen and gently thawed to allow the sugars, colour and flavour to be extracted, leaving water behind as ice - a process called cryoconcentration. This concentrates the juice to a potential alcohol of 20 – 22%. This juice is fermented using Champagne yeast to 10 - 12% ABV over 3 to 4 months. Then the ferment is stopped and the resulting product is filtered sterile, bottled and further aged in bottle before release.
