Cornish Orchards is a cider and juice company based at Duloe, Cornwall.

History

The company was started by Andy Atkinson in 1999. The farm has 15 acres of its own apples, mainly heritage varieties but also buys in apples from local orchards

In 2013 the company sold in a multimillion-pound deal to a London brewing and pubs group, Fuller, Smith and Turner. Fuller's was acquired by Asahi UK in 2019 for £250m, although both Fuller's & Cornish Orchards continue to trade under their own names.

Awards

The company has won several awards for its cider, including a gold in the Campaign for Real Ale's national cider and Perry championships at Reading in 2012
