Not written for a while so apologies to my 372,000 followers. We've been busy making serious inroads into Powys and various other regions recently. I'm happy to report that our cider is now available in the Coach and Horses pub in Llangynidr and the Bridge Cafe in Brecon with more new venues to follow. We are now seriously up and running with our Bag in Box cider and our Mini Kegs. Recent takers include the Bunch of Grapes Pontypridd and the Bridge at Michaelchurch. It's been great to see that all our hard work on the 'straight from the vat' cider is paying off with some good feedback so far. We paid special attention to the filtering process this year and have achieved a lovely golden colour with only mild cloudiness and definitely no bits!
Apparently the Gulf Stream is finally moving North to where it should be so hopefully we will get some serious cider weather in the next couple of months.
I just completed my first 100 mile cycle ride as part of the Abergavenny Festival of Cycling's 'Tour of the Brecon Beacons' sportive. It was pretty tough I can tell you, especially for a non club affiliated casual cyclist like yours truly. But the main thing I'm proud of is that despite three of the most serious mountain climbs to be found in the whole of South Wales, I actually managed to stay in the saddle the whole way up all of 'em! Great if not taxing day out, and good preparation for my John O'Groats to Land's End cycle ride in September...
see you at the cider bar
