Date: 10/05/2018

The Countess of Wessex rounded off her day in Hereford on the 25th April with a tour of the Cider Museum which records the history of the county’s centuries old cider making industry.

The visit, which included lunch also marked the 45th anniversary of the founding of the country’s only Accredited museum devoted entirely to cider.

The museum is housed in the 1888 original cider mill built by Percy and Fred Bulmer. HRH met several of the new generation of craft cider makers keeping alive the traditional methods of making cider and perry, including Tom Oliver and Little Pomona, and tasted some of their products.

Elizabeth Pimblett, the cider museum director said: “The Countess showed a real interest in how cider making had developed over the centuries, asking lots of questions and chatting to producers and those amongst the guests who had worked in the industry  in the past.”
