Kentish Pip

We’re a small team with a big ambition: challenge the status quo, push aside the mediocre and reignite your love affair with cider.


We combine the best ingredients with innovation, style and a pinch of tradition so you can discover beyond your cider expectations.

About us

It all starts with apples. Kentish Pip is based at Woolton Farm near Canterbury, where the Mount Family has been growing apples for four generations.

Our products are a window into the lifestyle and ethos of our family business: working with nature and never satisfied to settle for second best.

Our story

Founded by Herbert Mount over 100 years ago growing fruit and vegetables. Now diversified into a thriving mixed crop farm, business hub and drinks business.

We produce Kentish Pip cider and our own wines from our small vineyard.

Kentish Pip started out in 2012 by Mark Mount, who milled and pressed the apples by hand in his garden.

Working with his wife Rosie they developed the original range from extensive trials and old family recipes, such as hedgerow jelly and elderflower cordial.

An early run of awards and growing sales set the business on its way.


Kentish Pip has come a long way since the early days but the journey is far from over.

Our cider is now available as far away as Hong Kong and produced in cans, bottles, kegs and bag in boxes.

We are an M&S approved producer with SALSA accreditation since 2017.

Our core range includes six different ciders and we have a specials range with very small batches of limited editions released throughout the year.

We are obsessed with flavour and quality and our goal is to combine the best ingredients with innovation, style and a pinch of tradition to produce the next generation of Great British Cider.
