THATCHERS has scooped an international award for its cider this week.

The Sandford-based business picked up the champions trophy at the International Brewing Awards in London – an event widely regarded as the Oscars of the brewing industry.

Judges were asked to sample a number of different ciders without knowing who had brewed them.

After beating competition from across the globe, managing director Martin Thatcher said it was a ‘real honour’ to be recognised by the experts.

He said: “Our aim is always to produce the best quality cider with exceptional taste, and to come home with this trophy means that we do just that.
