GWYNT Y DDRAIG Gwynt Y Ddraig is a family-owned and operated business that produces award-winning Welsh ciders. The company was founded in 200, making cider from the apples grown in their orchard in Pontypridd, Wales. Today, Gwynt Y Ddraig is one of the largest and most respected cider producers in Wales, with a reputation for crafting premium ciders using traditional methods.
Gwynt Y Ddraig offers a wide variety of ciders, including still, sparkling, and fruit-flavoured varieties. The company uses only locally-sourced apples, many of which are grown on their own orchards or sourced from neighboring farms. Gwynt Y Ddraig is committed to sustainability and uses environmentally-friendly farming practices to grow their apples.
The cider-making process at Gwynt Y Ddraig is a combination of traditional and modern methods. The company uses a state-of-the-art press to extract the juice from the apples, but then ferments the juice in oak barrels to give the cider a unique, complex flavor profile. Gwynt Y Ddraig ciders are all natural, with no added sugars or artificial flavours.
Gwynt Y Ddraig has won numerous awards for their ciders, including multiple gold medals at the Royal Welsh Show and the International Cider Challenge. Their signature Black Dragon cider has been named the Best Cider in Wales for four years running.
