Since 1087 the Luscombe estate where it all started for Luscombe Drinks has been a hive of farming activity, with the farm making an appearance in the dooms day book. The Luscombe family left the farm around 1750, and it wasn’t for another two centuries that the current owner, Julian David, opened the next chapter in the Luscombe story. Julian relished the opportunity to rejuvenate Luscombe’s cider pressing heritage, and continued the tradition, selling freshly pressed drinks from the farm gate. Production increased over the years and, in 1983, Luscombe cider earned first prize and the Reserve Champion Award at the Devon County Show.

 In 1997, Gabriel David returned from a spell in Sicily, to join his father in the family business. Inspired to bring home the evocative flavours of his travels, he began crafting classic English soft drinks and juices from organic ingredients. Every drink was – and still is today – entirely free from concentrates, additives, preservatives, colourings, artificial flavourings or enhancers.

The range of drinks is ever increasing and so are the number of awards, with a total of 73 great taste awards, Luscombe prides itself on only bottling the best. Many of the drinks have numerous accolades and are renowned for their natural taste and high fruit content.
