H. Weston & Sons Limited ("Weston's Cider") is a cider producer based in Much Marcle, Herefordshire, England. The company has been making cider in the same place since 1878 and sells more than 15 types of cider and perry, including both organic and low alcohol varieties.
Weston's most popular brand is 'Stowford Press', which is a medium, clear, sparkling cider, which can be bought in bottles or on tap from inns around the south-west and south-midlands, though it can sometimes be found further afield. Another popular brand is 'Old Rosie'. This is a strong (7.3%), dry, still and cloudy cider, very much like a traditional scrumpy. This can be bought in traditionally-shaped 2 litre glass jars, or occasionally on tap. This cider takes its name from a steam traction engine owned by the company.
Weston's ciders can be bought in many supermarkets around the country, or from their own shop, which is located within the grounds of the factory. Tours of the factory are given, and there is a wide variety of contemporary and historical cider bottles on display in its bottle museum.
