Ad Astra Cider

Ad Astra is a new craft cider company and tap house in the heart of Somerset.Founded by an RAF veteran and his family, the name 'Ad Astra' is proudly derived from the Royal Air Force motto, 'Per ardua ad astra' – which means 'Through adversity to the stars'.

We make fantastic ciders from classic cider apples grown within our own 12 acre orchard (we grow 12 varieties) and picked, pressed and fermented on site. Never made from concentrate, the cider is naturally slightly different each year depending on the environmental conditions during the growing season.

We have an RAF-themed taproom in an historic Somerset cider barn and run quiz nights, band nights, cider tastings and other events such has Halloween and Wassail.
