Every year tonnes of fruit is wasted around the country because it’s too big, too small or too ugly to be sold. Instead of letting the unwanted apples and pears from our own farm be wasted, we turn it into delicious juice.

Our range of four juices is available in 750ml and 250ml individual serve bottles.

RELIQUUM London Dry Gin uses an eau de vie made from apples grown in the farm’s orchards which would otherwise go to waste. Botanicals include Calamondin an unusual citrus fruit which is also grown on the farm The result is an exceptionally smooth citrusy gin and mellowed with the floral sweetness of apple which is made in partnership with Master Distiller, Dr John Walters from the English Spirit Distillery. The name Reliquum comes from Latin and means “All that remains”.
Two other spirits join the Reliquum Plum and Reliquum Apricot blend London Dry with tree-ripened fruit for a smooth taste with the distinct aroma of the fruit. The fruit is grown in traditional orchards and left to naturally ripen to develop the fullest flavour. Nothing else is added and nothing taken away.
