Taunton Cider Where the Cidermaker's Art Is Still Recognised 1975

20 mins United Kingdom Director. Charles Mapleston

The West Country, skittles and cider are "more or less inseparable" announces this enjoyable promo for the Taunton Cider Company. The film demonstrates the process of cidermaking, from planting and harvesting to the fermentation of the juice and bottling at the plant. Don't miss the scenes of Norton Fitzwarren's wassailing ceremony - a night of Somerset merry-making that is said to wake up the trees and help yield a good apple crop!
