Brothers

The cider is made with a carefully selected pear juice using a fermentation process that's been developed over generations to retain the natural sparkle and preserve the more delicate flavours. Brothers' use their own specially grown yeast and do not rely on commercially available dried stuff. During fermentation, everything is kept under pressure to make sure the finished cider retains all its own carbonation, some producers just pump in CO2. This results in distinctivly small bubbles and the fact the cider stays fizzy longer.

The creation of four brothers, Matthew, Jonathan, Francis and Daniel Showering, hence the name Brothers Cider. It was originally made in Shepton Mallet in 1992 and still is to this day. The original Showerings business was perhaps best known for Babycham: it eventually became part of Taunton-Coates-Gaymer, aka Matthew Clark Taunton and now part of the Constellation Group

In 1995 Glastonbury Festival gave way to the Brothers Bar and now is served at many festivals accross the country including Download Festival.
