About Us

Hawkes Mission: Cider salvaged

Hawkes is a city cidery, based in Central London. We are one of the fastest growing cideries in the UK. Sitting on the Bermondsey beer mile, we are all about cider, and salvaging waste products. Never from concentrate, we use upcycled, unloved apples rejected by supermarkets, and every year we scoop up the city’s windfall apples from urban apple trees for our flagship cider, urban orchard.
