The National Association of Cider Makers (NACM) promotes the cider and perry industry in the UK.
It represents both larger producers and many hundreds of smaller scale cider makers.
It was two years in the making, but now Thatchers Zero, the Somerset cider maker’s first alcohol-free cider, has been named Best No and Low Cider in the UK by industry magazine Imbibe.
As pubs and bars await the Government announcement allowing them to open their doors once again, the fourth-generation family business will be offering every one of its free-trade customers in Great Britain a free 50 litre keg of Thatchers cider in a £1million pledge.
Cider makers across the South West have responded to the continued absence of gatherings by launching a cyber celebration to mark South West Cider Week.
