GLINTCAP Glory for Celtic Marches Cider
Celtic Marches GLINTCAP glory!
The 13th Annual GLINTCAP awards, held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, proved to be a success for Celtic Marches Herefordshire Craft Cider. Travelling over 3700 miles, all six ciders returned to the farm as winners.
The Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition played host to 1334 entries from around the world. The four day yearly event takes place in Grand Rapids and features a wealth of ciders from commercial producers and amateur cidermakers.
Celtic Marches creates craft cider on their farm in Bishops Frome, Herefordshire. Using only apples grown on their own farm, this single estate cidermaker is having a very rewarding year. Having recently won awards for all their ciders entered in the 2018 International Cider Challenge, their ciders are now proving a popular choice among judges over the pond.
Entering six of their ladies into GLINTCAP, the delicious drops each picked up a medal. With Slack Alice, slightly drier medium cider, and Cuckoo Penny, a hazy rhubarb infused apple cider, both picking up Silver medals, the team at Celtic Marches are over the moon.
The apples certainly don’t fall far from the tree as the remaining four ciders all scooped a Bronze medal. Lily the pink, and Thundering Molly’s Bronze awards fell in the Traditional Cider categories. With Cracklin’ Rosie, Celtic’s sparkling pear cider picking up a Bronze medal in the Modern Perry category. Their Ruby Tuesday, a fruity number, liberally imparted with British raspberry juice capped it off with Bronze in the Fruit Cider.
