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.
The apples come from one of the West Country’s oldest, and most influential, orchards. With its ongoing research into apple varieties, Thatchers Cider is celebrating the work of the former National Fruit and Cider Institute with its new limited edition cider.
Sadly, although the harvest goes on as usual, there will be no Big Apple Celebration this year.
Berlin’s first cider festival is hosted by Hawkes, London Cidermaker.
