A golden year for Celtic Marches
2018 has been a huge success for Celtic Marches; scooping some very exciting awards throughout. The team are immensely proud that their hard work and efforts over the last 12 months have reaped amazing accolades.
In early Spring, at the International Cider Challenge, Celtic Marches, were awarded two bronze medals for Slack Alice and Thundering Molly, a silver medal for Ruby Tuesday, a gold medal for Lily the Pink with Cuckoo Penny topping it off with a Trophy medal.
Following on from those fantastic results, the girls headed across the pond to the USA. At GLINTCAP (Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition) Celtic Marches won silver medals for their Cuckoo Penny, a hazy rhubarb cider and Slack Alice, a more traditional apple cider. There were further celebrations as the remaining four ciders entered each received bronze medals; Cracklin’ Rosie (Modern Perry), Lily the Pink (Traditional Cider- Sweet), Ruby Tuesday (Fruit Cider) and Thundering Molly (Traditional Cider- Sweet).
Later in the year, the jet setting ciders headed off yet again. This time to the Japan Cider and Perry Awards. It was another successful trip. Celtic Marches picked up a silver medal with Thundering Molly (Traditional Cider- Sweet) and then bronze for Slack Alice ( Traditional Cider- Sweet), Cuckoo Penny (Flavoured cider- fruits and Flowers) and Lily the Pink (Traditional Cider-sweet).
