“We are enormously grateful to Thatchers, and we hope it is only the start of a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship”, said Orchards and Cider Chairman, Anthony Gibson.
“Thatchers’ success has been an inspiration to the whole industry, especially as they have been true to their roots as traditional farm-based cider producers. It is greatly to their credit as one of our largest cider producers, and says much for their values, that they are prepared to support an exhibition which primarily acts as a showcase for small-scale artisan cider-making.”
Managing director Martin Thatcher says, “We’ve been involved in the Royal Bath and West for many years in many different ways – as a competitor, as a judge and as an exhibitor. It’s therefore our pleasure to now add being a sponsor to that list, at what is the UK’s premier agricultural show and highly regarded cider competition, here in the heart of Somerset.”
Thatchers will once again be joining with Butcombe at this year’s show, from 27th to 30th May providing great Somerset cider, beer and entertainment in the Farmers Food Court.
