Thatchers Cider has picked up two prizes at the Family Business Of The Year Awards.

The cidermaker, which is based at Myrtle Farm in Winscombe, was presented with the family business of the year crown for the South and South West, plus the food and drink family business of the year award too.

Martin Thatcher, whose great-grandfather founded the company in 1904, attended the ceremony at the Mayfair Hotel in London.

He said: “It was an inspirational evening to be in the presence of family firms from all over the UK, across many different business sectors.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to have returned to Myrtle Farm with two awards.

“This is recognition not just for previous, current and future generations of the Thatcher family, but for all our employees who share the passion of making great quality Somerset cider and are part of our extended family.

”We’d like to thank Family Business United for recognising Thatchers in this way.”
