We're Out Of Keeved Cider!!

Due to a couple of really well attended markets and a lot of thirsty customers we're all out of our Keeved Cider. We're really sorry if this comes as an inconvenience to any of you. But if you are looking to buy, you can still order one of our other products from our store.

Covid-19 Update

We're pleased to confirm that our services have not been affecting by the recent coronavirus outbreak and imposed government restrictions. You can continue to order our products from our online store and attend the Barnard Castle, Sedgefield and Malton markets to meet the brewers and buy our products in person.

The Brewers

Meet Rob and Jane, both keen scrumpers, they realised there was more to it than just making apple pies. In 2014, they started on a journey to use locally grown apples to their absolute best potential.  The J&R Armitage brewery was born

A Family Run Business

There's more to J & R Armitage than just Jane and Rob. They both have large families with every family member getting stuck in to produce the best possible product. 
That's what makes our brand and products so unique.


Our Brand

We started J & R Armitage off with a production just 20 litres of our sparkling apple wine. This year we plan to produce and sell 1800 litres of our products whist maintaining our same company values and the same recognisable apple tree logo. We believe in keeping things natural and producing beautiful elegant products whilst keeping true to our raw ingredients.
