The Abbey Shop 

The Abbey Shop has been part of Ampleforth life for more than 25 years and offers a wonderful selection of items, from the spiritual and devotional to giftware, greetings cards and souvenirs. Each item has been chosen with care and many are made here at Ampleforth or by local producers. We also stock a wide range of spiritual and religious books, as well as titles by local authors and former pupils, known as ‘Old Amplefordians.’

Ampleforth Abbey Produce

The shop stocks the award-winning Ampleforth Abbey Cider, Cider Brandy and Apple Liqueur, as well as the Trappist-style Ampleforth Abbey Beer which we produce in partnership with Little Valley Brewery. Other produce includes the delicious Orchard Blossom Honey which is made by the bees from the hives in our Abbey Orchard, and a range of Ampleforth Abbey chutneys which are produced by Rosebud Preserves, using our fruit and brandies. We also offer beautiful oak cheese boards and platters that are handcrafted on site by our talented craftsmen and feature a hand carved apple to represent our Abbey Orchard.

Gifts & Souvenirs 

Whether you are looking for a Baptism or Holy Communion gift, a souvenir from your visit to Ampleforth, a book on spirituality or a birthday gift, the Abbey shop offers a fantastic selection and a warm and friendly welcome.

We are pleased to now be able to offer many products by mail order through our online shop. To learn more about our Ampleforth Abbey Drinks please click here.

Per case of 12 x 33cl bottles (7% abv) This item is for despatch to the UK Mainland only. In 1608 a community of Benedictine monks fled England for the safety of France. Determined to make a living for themselves, they began brewing their native beer- 'la biere anglaise'. It was made with hops and barley, then double fermented for strength and a 'champagne-like' sparkle. In 1793, escaping the French Revolution, they fled back to England and eventually settled in at Ampleforth in 1802, and built the Abbey. And today the beer, to a similar recipe, is being brewed and poured again.
£9.99 for 25cl.
