Gloucester Rugby star launches cider business

Made from locally sourced apples and traditionally-crafted, Gloucester Rugby star Jake Polledri has unveiled his new Just Pressed Cider.

Gloucester back row rugby star Jake Polledri has launched Just Pressed, his own craft cider company, for fans to enjoy across the country.

Jake and his father Pete worked and drank together to both explore and perfect the flavours featured in the cider line.

Using freshly-pressed apples harvested from local Somerset orchards, drinkers can enjoy three unique, vegan and gluten free blends: the medium dry ‘Boomfa’; medium-sweet ‘Blindside’; and dry ‘Skipper’ – all giving a nod to Jake’s rugby affiliation.

Cider-lovers can pick and mix whichever flavours take their fancy.
