Aspall is a family cyder-making business established in 1728 at Aspall Hall in Suffolk by Clement Chevallier. The Chevallier family still live and work among Clement’s orchards. Today Aspall is run by the eighth generation of the family, producing a range of award winning apple juices, cyders and vinegars. Aspall’s produce is sold via the main supermarkets, in pubs and restaurants and directly through its website.
