Nightingale Cider Company

The product of a lifelong love affair with all things liquid apple.


Every drop of Nightingale Cider is the real thing. Our proper Kentish ciders are made from hand-picked fruit grown on our farm and local orchards.

Our Cider
The Nightingale family farm and orchards are located in Tenterden, Kent, and we’ve been fruit farming in the area since 1948. Craft cider in the region is currently booming and we’re thrilled to be part of such an exciting industry and welcoming community.

For our award-winning range, we keep the cider making process as natural as possible at every stage—our ciders and perries are handmade from 100% fruit juice and all are gluten-free and vegan. We’re driven by our passion for the highest quality ciders, bridging tradition with innovation to produce a range of flavoursome offerings for today’s drinker.

Nightingale ciders are available throughout Kent, in our farm shop, our taproom and on our webshop.

Our tap and tasting room

We opened The Watch for the first time in summer 2022 and after a successful season, we’re pleased to announce that it will be open every Friday and Saturday throughout the warmer months.

Called 'The Watch' after a group of Nightingales, the tap and tasting room is located on our family farm. This is a space for drinkers to join us and enjoy fresh, delicious ciders on the very site where much of the fruit is grown and fermented.

Visitors can enjoy our award-winning range, including still, sparkling and fine ciders on draft, in bottles and cans. We will also offer a selection of craft beer from local breweries, including Docker Brewery and Floc Brewing and wine from local vineyards.There will be a good selection of no/low alcoholic options available too.

We currently have a selection of mouth-watering local charcuterie and snack options perfect to graze on while enjoying our cider.
