Scotland is renowned for producing the highest quality whiskies and beers. We simply want to bring this attitude to Scottish cider production - Attitude not Latitude. 

Scotland's Cider

Close to the sea, our early November frost and clear skies burn our apples skins, intensify their tannins, and sugars, to give unique flavours of burnt caramel and toffee.   

The Toffee Frost

I am repeatedly asked, "can apples can grow in Scotland?" I think this image of NØVAR's harvest speaks more than words ever could.  

Cider in Scotland 

The first harvest of 2019. Major is a small but a mighty apple with strong tannins and sugar, but it will need a little help with acidity.

NØVAR Cider will harvest late into the year to achieve deep notes of tannin and a dark amber finish to its cider. 

A Late Harvest

Looking out onto the Cromarty Firth the winter barley may be done, but the apple harvest is just getting started.

A Cidery With a View

NØVAR Cider is proud to have established the most northern cidery in Scotland.   

A Scottish Cidery

We decided to remove 100 Black Dabinett apple trees and graft two of our favourite varieties Knotted Kernal and Tremlett's Bitter.

In preparation for its website launch,  NØVAR sought advice from food artist and conceptual stylist Camilla Wordie.
