Aston Manor Brewery

This brewer says it is the largest independent cider maker in the UK, producing 1m pints a day. As well as making its own brands, such as Frosty Jack’s, Crumpton Oaks and Kingstone Press, the company also supplies cider to the big supermarkets. In 2009 the Birmingham-based company bought the Devon Cider Company from the administrators to increase capacity. Owned by the Ellis family since 1983, under managing director Peter Ellis the company has grown profits 47% a year, from £1.9m in 2007 to £6.1m in 2010.
