The Hogan's history

A whistlestop tour of just a few key dates spanning the last 30 years and a few thoughts on what the future may hold...

 
 
History_1985.png

This is John Stewart, a neighbour to the Hogan's and the man who first introduced Allen to the art of cider making. 


Spent too long drinking John's damson wine....

 

 

John finally caught up with the times and installed electricity, so he and Allen bought a scratter which was used to chop up the apples.


The year Allen launched Hogan's Cider commercially for the first time, officially making the leap from amateur to professional with ease; proudly exhibiting at every local event he could get to that summer!

 

 
 

Our first proud appearance at the Royal Show in Stoneleigh with our instantly forgettable Irish branding!


Our bottles had a little makeover and Hogan’s went international.

 

 

 

 

Prestigious in the craft cider calendar, we won 1st prize at Putley in 2010 with our bottle fermented cider


First bag in box to take production in-house

 

 

We won Bath & West 2 years on the trot, course we did!


From Warwickshire with love -

first Russian exports to Belgorod to Hamiltons Irish pub

 

 

We invested heavily in our future and hopefully the future of the industry, with a brand new kegging line giving greater scope for innovation for our Shaun!

We've secured supply of cider apples as we expand having agreed terms with growers


We're excited to open up our new tap room at Hogan's HQ ... come visit and say hello!
