Sandford Orchards is thrilled to announce that its Devon Red Cider has just been voted ‘Best Drink Product’ by the readers of Food Magazine.

The Food Magazine Reader Awards have championed the South West’s best independent food and drink businesses for nearly a decade. The Awards are an opportunity for readers to celebrate their favourite indie venues and products. Over 100,000 votes were cast over two rounds of voting across 13 categories this year. The winners were announced at a ceremony at Nancarrow Farm in Cornwall on May 15.

Devon Red is a naturally tasty and utterly delicious, fresh apple cider made from apples grown and pressed in Devon. It is available to purchase from www.sandfordorchards.co.uk as well as other select retailers across the country.

“We are absolutely thrilled to win this award. We have always thought that our Devon Red was a pretty special drink but to win this accolade confirms that the food and drink-loving public thinks so too. We were up against some tough competition, as the South West is home to a host of fantastic independent drinks businesses, which makes the win even more prestigious”. Commented Barny Butterfield, Chief Cidermaker at Sandford Orchards.

Founded in 2002, independent, family-owned Sandford Orchards is based in Crediton, Mid Devon in the oldest working cider mill in the UK. The area has long been known as one of the most fertile parishes in all of Britain, both for its grazing and ability to grow apples. Crediton sits in the lee of the moors, so receives the right amount of rain and the right units of heat in summer.

Sandford Orchards takes a fresh, natural and low impact approach to producing cider. Combining tradition and innovation, Sandford Orchards produces an award-winning range of core session, traditional, fine and fruit ciders.
