    Hi Gabe, how much would the duty on 7’000 litres amount to? Regards John

    1. About £2500. Doesn’t necessarily sound like a lot, but on this scale, it would amount to a decent chunk of turnover. But more than just the plain cash, it would be the HMRC paperwork that would be the nail in the coffin.

  2. A very well written piece Gabe – puts the issue into context. Some of the cider producers over the 7,000 litre production who have made the leap to pay duty are totally missing the point about the rural traditions. It is not just about the money but about the culture of West Country cider
