New Year, Cider still bubbling

Well we had a good end to the year.  We got press in the Guardian courtesy of top chef Angela Hartnett who used Ty Gwyn Cider (and a photo of a half empty bottle) in her recipe 'mussels in cider sauce'.  Our friend TV presenter Kate Humble made great mentions of us in her column in the Telegraph and we also had mentions in the Sunday Times travel section.  I think Oz Clarke may have mentioned us again too.  So that's all good stuff.  The cider is bubbling away and as things go just a little quiet at this time of year on the sales front, it's a great time to get really organised.  Hence it's time to brush up those Excel skills, make a few spreadsheets and file away every single trade sales invoice of 2011.  Slightly more exciting things that will be done shortly are a new website, new flyers, new packaging and some more ideas about how to keep the Ty Gwyn brand going from strength to strength.  Rest Bay is blown out so no surf trips for now though I will naturally be keeping one eye on my latest discovery, Killers in Morocco.  It may also be time to look at purchasing a new wetsuit as I slipped on the rocks recently and the neoprene on the shoulder is suddenly looking a bit threadbare...

More cider and surf related news to follow.  Have a great 2012!
