Cornish Orchards moves into cans with 33cl range
Cornish cider producer, Cornish Orchards, has extended into 33cl cans with three of its ciders.
The company, which was bought by the Fuller’s Beer Company in 2013, has launched Gold Cider, Blush Cider and Alcoholic Ginger Beer into the popular 33cl canned format.
Andy Atkinson, managing director of Cornish Orchards, said: “These new eye-catching cans are a perfect addition to our range. They are easily recyclable and very light to carry, making them great for festivals, barbecues and picnics. Cans offer real benefits for our trade customers too as they chill down quicker than glass and take up less space. But more importantly than all that, they taste delicious.”
Cornish Orchards is based at Westnorth Manor Farm, part of the Duchy of Cornwall Estate. Founder and managing director Andy Atkinson started out with a dairy farm and originally he crafted apple juice as a hobby. By 1999 the juice had become so popular he gave up dairy farming to focus solely on juice production and in 2002 he created his own cider. The company now produces craft ciders, pressed juices and soft drinks.
