Why our Pioneer Range is Leading the Way in Cidermaking


We’re having an amazing September at Sandford Orchards. Not only does it look like we’re on for a great apple harvest, we’ve picked up one of the leading awards in Food & Drink for our St Louis Dry Hopped Cider, one of our Pioneer Range.

Winning a Golden Fork at the Guild of Fine Food Awards is a true honour and it’s great for Devon Cider, putting it back at the top of cider making, where it belongs.

What fills us with most pleasure is the endorsement it has given to our Pioneer range of cider. We’re always looking at ways we can push the boundaries of what cider can be.

Our Pioneer range reflects the energy coming from the craft beer market and appeals to drinks explorers. The three ciders currently in the range all have individual stories to tell and their unique characters and personalities are reflected in their individual bottle designs.  We’ve had some great feedback on that too as our branding for the Pioneer range is also in the running for an award, so watch this space..

So what’s next for Sandford Orchards? Well, we are already working on our next ciders in the Pioneer series, and can’t wait to unleash them!
