Celtic Marches is delighted to announce that it has been named the Best Cider Producer of 2018 at the Herefordshire Food and Drink Awards.
Gwatkin Cider Company Ltd from Abbeydore and Leominster-based Newton Court Cider were named as the runners up.
Susan Vaughan and Darren Morris, Directors at Celtic Marches, were pleased to collect the award on Wednesday 28 November 2018. This is the latest award for what has been a very impressive year for the self-sustaining cider producer, who has picked up accolades at several international competitions last year.
All cider apples that are used to make its produce are grown in 200-acres of orchards on the family farm, which has been run and owned by the family for over 100 years. This means that Celtic Marches has control over its cider all the way through the process from tree to glass, with PGI status to confirm that they only use 100% Herefordshire apples within its award-winning ciders.
The past five years has demonstrated a huge amount of success for Celtic Marches, from its launch in 2013 with only Susan and her brother as employees to present day with 25 members of staff. The recognition shows that the demand for Celtic Marches’ craft cider has increased nationally and internationally alike.
