Gould Ciders & Perries
Gould Ciders & Perries is based in Grampound, Cornwall. The Gould family have been making and bottling cider pressed from their three-acre orchard near Truro since 2014, and as of 2020 they’ve been bottling perry too. Their unsprayed orchard boasts something in the region of eighty different varieties from Cornwall, Somerset and, excitingly, Normandy and Brittany.
Jonathan Gould sums up his philosophy as “minimal intervention in processing, natural yeasts, no sugar, no this no that and no the other.” He likes to produce one-off batches based round a single variety (or just one or two varieties) in a process that is right at the opposite end of the scale from standardisation. So if you buy a bottle of Gould’s cider or perry, enjoy it - there may never be another one like it!.
