Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm

From pressing the fruit for their first ever cyder to dreaming up their unique Classic Whiskey, Healey’s is about more than just apples.

In 1986 Healey’s set out to resurrect the largely forgotten art of cyder-making in Cornwall. They wanted to use the county’s wonderful produce to craft a quality cyder that everyone would love. So they bought a 150-year-old farm. And a 16th century press. They planted orchards, renovated barns and grew to become the Healey’s of today – with award-winning cyders, spirits, juices and jams to their name.

They’ve become the largest cyder-maker in Cornwall and the first distillery for 300 years.
