Hard Pressed Cider is the crazy idea of Adam and George.
Both are great fans of cider in all its forms, and, after several drunken nights in some of the many excellent craft beer bars Edinburgh has to offer, started to wonder why none of these bars, with all their fantastic beer, were not providing quality cider to match.
Working in the Jolly Judge for nearly a decade, Adam has always actively promoted real cider: stocking it in the bar and organising Edinburgh's first biannual cider festivals. George, on the other hand, is relatively new to the trade, but shares Adam's passion for quality drinks, and grew up surrounded by cider, his parents being keen amateur cider producers back home in the sunny Midlands.
Through distributing only the best real and craft cider and perry the UK has to offer, we hope to offer Edinburgh the ability to enjoy the wonderful world of cider and perry in all its interesting, varied, refined, and exciting forms.
We currently stock a full range of draft and bottled cider and perry from Oliver's, Dunkerton's, Malvern Magic and Farmer Jim's cideries, and Hoxton Cidersmiths. We will be adding to our portfolio in the (very) near future, if you have any requests then get in touch and we'll see what we can do. If you'd like to learn more, see a price list, or order some cider, then please see the 'Contact Us' section below.
