A Sandford cidermaker has introduced a new seasonal tipple to refresh drinkers on warm, sunny days.

Thatchers Cider has launched Summer Vintage – a traditional premium range for summer 2018.

The recipe was inspired by a stroll through the cidermaker’s orchards – to create a light but full-flavour cider.

Martin Thatcher, a fourth generation cidermaker, said: “We first made this cider back in 2016 as a limited edition, and thanks to popular demand we’re now making it again for this year’s summer season.

“I love this cider – it’s easy to drink, naturally light in colour, with a delicate aroma, but at the same time has a rounded, full flavour, that comes from the mix of bittersweet and dessert apples that we press and blend here at Myrtle Farm.

“We hope people will really enjoy this cider while – hopefully – enjoying the delights of the British summer.”
