Winning Part II

Orchards and cider are going from strength to strength in our beautiful county - and across the cider making regions of the UK as a whole! This means that, when we enter competitions, its even more wonderful to walk away with recognition and a prize because the field of entries is so strong. We're proud to be alongside an amazing community of fellow cider makers! 

So far this year we have been part of the Big Apple Cider Trials at Putley over the first May Bank Holiday and, more recently, the International Cider & Perry Competition at the Cider Museum in Hereford where we picked up prizes for our First Press, draught cider and Perry. Next stop: the Cider Trials at the Royal Three Counties Show! 



We sent some bottles of our Gasping Goose and Panting Partridge Perry to Chicago at the start April to be judged at GLINTCAP - our very first international competition. We're very pleased to say we came away with a Silver for the Perry and a Bronze award for our Goose! Great news against some tough competition from all over the cider making world!

It was a busy weekend for collecting awards during May Bank Holiday! As well as hearing about the GLINTCAP results, we went along to the Big Apple at Putley and won 2nd place for Panting Partridge! Roll on the Cider Trials at the Royal Bath and West Show at the start of June! We have our fingers crossed........


Reasons to drink apple cider vinegar.

We bottled our first apple cider vinegar just after Christmas ready for sale in the shop at Newton Court. It's amazing stuff...It does everything from helping creaky joints to polishing wooden furniture! 

From a scientific viewpoint, the 'superness' of apple cider vinegar is believed to come from it's high concentration of acetic acid which improves the body's absorbtion of important minerals from the foods we eat

It's best to start with a tablespoonful in a glass of water - and if you can't get used to the taste, mix it up with a drop on honey.
