Duskin Apple Juice
The first juice of the year usually rolls off the press in September so
look out for it in a shop near you!
Duskin Apple Juice started in 1980 and has been pressing individual varieties ever since.
We cannot claim to be the first; after all, the idea of removing the juice from an apple must be as old as the apples themselves. However, more than 30 years has got to be some kind of record. Duskin has been producing single varieties since the beginning.
The process is low-tech and low-volume which allows single varieties to be kept separate,
allows the natural flavour to remain largely unchanged and "in the bottle pasteurisation"
Kent is often referred to as the garden of England, with good reason. And every good garden (from Eden onwards) should have an apple tree if it possible can. Kent is lucky, it has thousands of them. At Duskin Farm we are privileged enough to not only live in this Garden of England but also to bottle it. Kentish apples grown, pressed and bottled in Kent. This means that, even if you do not live in Kent or get the chance to visit (please come and see our wonderful county if you can) you can still get the taste and aroma of the North Downs.
One sign of genius is when it makes you say "Oh, of course." I remember this whenever a first time taster says "Oh, it tastes of apples!"
Duskin take the juice out of an apple and put it into a bottle. If you like the apple, please try the juice.
We use only local Kentish apples, pressed in season to avoid long cold-storage
Our In-the-bottle pasteurisation process preserves flavour and particularly aroma
We use no additives except for a tiny amount Vitamin C as an antioxidant (to prevent browning)
We use minimal packaging - we like to keep everything simple...
We have been making single variety apple juices for over 35 years. Single varieties. No blending...
We do not supply to supermarkets
We are still a small family firm employing local people (some have been with us for decades) and supporting local enterprises
