Welcome to The Real Cider Company

About Us

Passionate about cider

The Real Cider Company launched in 2010 with the aim of helping wholesale farmhouse ciders and perries reach the market place. Our Director, Phil Kennedy is passionate about the cider business and our team works closely with every supplier he brings in to the company. We have a dedicated sales and marketing team, based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

Meet the team...

Phil is the reason The Real Cider company exists due to his passion for cider. He oversees the running of the company and has a vast knowledge of anything cider! He enjoys taking regular holidays to his house in France and driving around the country meeting small cider producers.

Julieann has been with us for 4 years and is our Festival expert. She will help you choose the right cider for your festival and will look after you until your festival has finished. Jules is a busy mum of 3, a dedicated gym bunny and lives for her holidays in the sun!

Known as cider Em, Emma has been with us for 3 years and looks after all our pubs. She can usually be found driving around the North of England, calling into pubs to say hello! Also a busy mum of 3 lively boys, Emma is a regular festival goer and likes nothing more than exploring the local hills and hostelries.

Jodie is our Administration Manager and has also been with us for 4 years. She will probably be the person you speak to on the phone. Jodie ensures that your order reaches you smoothly and also that we have lots of fantastic ciders in stock. A mum of one young daughter Jodie enjoys nothing more than sampling our delicious ciders in her garden and is obsessed with The Walking Dead!

Sarah is our Finance Manager and has been with us from the start. She looks after our accounts and keeps us on the straight and narrow. Another busy mum of 2 girls and a Labrador, Sarah enjoys keeping fit and seeing live bands.

Rob is our Logistics Manager and like Sarah has been with us from the start. Most of you will have met Rob (and Max the dog) when he delivers your cider. Rob enjoys nothing more than long walks with Max and spending the cold winter months in Thailand.
