Great news! We’ve won a bronze award in the International Cider Challenge hosted by the noted beer and cider expert, Pete Brown. This is particularly thrilling as the mainstream palette seems to be so predominantly tuned to medium and medium-sweet ciders that to win with a traditional crisp/dry cider is fantastic.

It’s 30 degrees cidergrade!

Cider orders have gone crazy with the hot weather! As a result we’re a bit behind on calling everyone up to check on stock levels, as we prefer to do, so do please phone or email your order through if you need a re-supply.

We’re at the best of the fests

We’re just back from a record Monmouthshire Food Festival at Caldicott Castle, and the Mach1 Bike Festival in Machynlleth. The Three Counties is up next. We’ve got a brand new festival cider bar courtesy of Top Notch Joiners in Abergavenny and a brand new van to put it in.

Warm welcomes

Finally, the traditional Ty Gwyn welcome to new stockists Copper Kettle Café near Abergavenny,the Geese and Fountain pub in Grantham, Lincolnshire, and distributor Cask Beer from Bridgend.

See you at the cider bar!
