A FLAGSHIP Somerset cider company has joined forces with one of the biggest festivals in the UK.
Sandford-based Thatchers cider is becoming the official drink of Glastonbury Festival – meaning Thatchers Gold will be available at all the onsite bars.
A cider bar will also be installed at the festival, where Thatchers Traditional, Heritage and Cheddar Valley ciders will be available on draught.
Managing director Martin Thatcher has formed a partnership with Michael Eavis, the founder of the festival, for the next three years.
Mr Eavis said: “This is a particularly special thing, as not only does it mean that we’re able to bring a much-loved local cider to Glastonbury but for me I see this as two long-standing Somerset farming families coming together to offer something out of the ordinary.”
And Mr Thatcher said: “Glastonbury’s reputation is phenomenal, and our partnership gives us an outstanding opportunity to bring the very best authentic Somerset cider to Worthy Farm.”
