Our Super Suppliers

Miles Tea located in Porlock (Somerset) 40 miles from Gardiner-Whites. You can read the history of D J Miles by clicking here! they have been trading since 1888, I hope we can keep going this long. 

Herby4  is a small family business based in the Quantock Hills in Somerset only 31 miles from our shop. Herby4 began making apple juice back in 2010. We couldn't fail to notice the abundance of beautiful apples in Somerset that were going to waste each year near our home in West Somerset.  Starting with a home made apple press (made from some railway sleepers and a car jack) and the apples from Auntie Brendas apple tree, we began experimenting pressing apples from local garden orchards and within a week had pressed, bottled and pasteurized our own apple juice and were selling it at the local farmers market.  Herby4 apple juices had been born.  Over the next few years, we invested in apple pressing equipment, expanded our range, experimented with different blends of apples to create a healthy range of drinks, free from additional sugar or preservatives. We started feeding our juice into local shops, cafes and pubs and as testimony to the great tasting product that we have created, our juices collected gold and champion awards in the hot and cold drinks categories of the 2017 Taste of the West awards.  From starting with a few trees in a few local gardens we now collect from a network of local orchards orchards as well and produce over 30,000 bottles per year.
