Back on a hot September day I paid Roger Wilkins, Cider King and owner of Wilkins Cider, a visit and wrote about it for Pellicle. It was a glorious day and a real experience. Roger is a huge character, there is no way you can be crowned a king without having a personality to match. I learnt a lot about cider and came away with a greater appreciation of traditional farmhouse. But I also learnt about how in decline traditional cider farms in Somerset, the home of farmhouse cider. Roger reckons he’ll only be in business for another two years as he has no one interested in taking over his farm. He’ll continue to make cider for himself and his locals as he’s a cider man through and through but you’ll have to visit him to try his delicious delicious cider.
