Festivals

Show season - here, there and everywhere!

This is the season of shows and events. I've been to many in the first part of the summer. There was the superb Wells Garden Festival in the Bishops Palace with the same weekend seeing a wonderful 2 days at the Longleat Food and Drink Festival - topped off with the Wurzels closing set on Sunday evening! There is good news as there are many more to come.

Having said that, if you're reading this and have a show planned, however big or small, and think that I could be a positive adornment and improve your show, do please get in touch!

With the weather being so conducive to outdoor events (but not much help to farmers - especially those with grass not growing and animals to feed), you really should get along and enjoy it while it's here. That will give you and excellent opportunity to taste and buy cider and apple juice that I will have on offer.

I will be doing the sweltering while you will be free you to do the drinking! I have always got nice chilled bottled cider on offer. Next stop is Yeovil Show (14th & 15th July), Wells Summer Spectacular (14th July), Taunton Live (21st July) Shaftesbury FC Gin and Cider Festival (28th July) and many more. Check out the events calendar to keep up to date!

Now we have 3 litre pouches!

After a while deliberating, we are now able to provide the Dowdings dry still Tower Brue in 3-litre pouches. This is ideal for those wanting some quality cider to take to festival, to events, to parties and a multitude of other occasions.

This will also be available in some local shops and direct from the website. Those close enough will always be welcome to colletc, but please email or ring first - we don't want you to waste a journey. If it isn't in your shop, do ask them to contact us to see how they can stock it.

The process of filling them is entertaining, a.k.a. frustrating and  some colourful language! It required the barrel, into which the cider is pumped, to be placed at enough height to get the cider to flow into the pouch. But, not too fast that the pouch can't expand to take it. Then it needs to slow when nearly full, or there is spillage to clear up! The pouch has to be fully stretched to accomodate the full 3 litres so needs care and diligence.
