Award Winning 2012 Vintage Announced
Ashcombe Cider today announced that the prestigious Taste of the West Awards have awarded the Ashcombe Cider Medium Dry 2012 vintage a BRONZE Award in the very first year of production.
This award is in recognition that the Estate produced an truly excellent regional product. It also recognises the hard work that the Ashcombe Team have put into the project - to resurrect the derelict estate orchards and rekindle cider production on the Estate. It's also a very proud moment indeed for Ralph Rayner, who set out to bring back some of the traditional artisan methods once used on the Estate. "We weren't sure if we could actually produce anything at all from what remained of the once large orchards" said Ralph. "However the team have done a fantastic job to create an absolutely delicious cider - just proving that with hard work you can create something special. We're already making good the derelict orchards, planting out new trees and planning our products for the the 2013 vintage - it really is an exciting time for the Estate".
Plans are afoot to create some new styles and flavours for next year - along with more outlets than ever stocking the Ashcombe Cider range.

2012 vintage on its way!!
2012 may have been the year for sport - and what a year it was - however it was certainly not the year for apples! Yields were significantly down on 2011, in itself not considered a great year, however what was harvested is still being lavished with all the love and attention afforded every other year. We have a good amount of fruit in barrels and so far it seems like there are some really good flavours roaming around. This is a great sign that the quality will be good even if there won't be large quantities! We will however keep you posted after the next tasting in a couple of weeks!!
