Devon-based Sandford Orchards is launching three of its session ciders in a new canned format. Devon Dry, Devon Mist and Rib Tickler will be available in cans from the end of May with Fanny’s Bramble, Old Blossom, Berry Lane and Cider Ginger to follow in June.
Devon Dry Cider, Devon Mist and Rib Tickler come in 8 x 440ml format (RRP £13.99) while Fanny’s Bramble, Old Blossom, Berry Lane and Cider Ginger will be available in 12 x 330ml (RRP £21).
Chief cidermaker at Sandford Orchards Barny Butterfield said: “As part of a recent £1.2m investment in our business we installed a brand new canning line to meet the growing demands for more canned drinks. We recently launched our most popular cider, Devon Red, in a can and the response was overwhelming. With BBQ season upon us and large outdoor gatherings now permitted, we felt that this was the ideal time to launch some of our other key ciders in a new can format. Cans are light, less fragile than bottles and eminently more portable making it the perfect format for al fresco consumption.”
