We were delighted to be shortlisted as finalists in the category of Best Cider Producer (sponsored by Dike & Sons) at the Blackmore Vale Taste Awards 2019.  Whilst we didn't win, we enjoyed a good night out and it was great to see so many local food & drink producers being celebrated across the region so many thanks to all the sponsors for making it possible.

After a 'dry' year awards wise in 2019, we were looking forward to the 2020 show season and an opportunity to compete again.  However, due to the pandemic, we will have to wait and see if any of the shows can take place later in the year or whether we may have to be patient until the 2021 season!
