Another season drawing to a close. Pressing is nearly over, and Neil is currently pressing the last load from the late-season’s fruit.
A dry summer with heavy rainfall nearer to harvest time has meant high sugars and plenty of juicy fruit – a brilliant combination for cider making. We’re expecting great results for the 2017 batch of ciders. We wish we could record the beautiful fragrance in the yard at this time of year. Fresh apples & sharp autumn air mixed with a hint of wood smoke from nearby cottage stoves. Shame they don’t make a perfume like that!
2016 has been a great year for us here at Worley’s. We are continuing to grow, and introduce our ciders into more pubs, shops and are exporting to new countries. We’ve invested in new equipment – including a box filler – which means our 20-litre draught boxes are much easier to produce. We box-up 1000-litres at a time which means we’ve always got a good supply in stock.
The new branded green boxes have been a hit this year too. Whether you’re a trade customer or a cider lover looking for a good supply, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org for prices and delivery options.
Another new addition to the range in 2016 has been the bottled Beatnik Billy. Light, sharp and sweet, it’s a sherberty stunner that’s sold like mad at our festivals and events this year. We decided to add some sparkle and bottle it after getting such good feedback in 2015 from the original draught Beatnik Billy, that’s still very popular. Served nicely-chilled, ice if you like, to cut through a thirst and refresh.
In addition to the bottled Beatnik Billy, we still have our delicious award-winning Mendip Hills and our spicy Red Hen in the range. Harvest Moon has sold out for this year, but apples are being pressed to create a whole new batch that’ll be ready in Summer 2017.
Lastly, our extra-fine Special Reserve. Always good at this time of year and great for holiday celebrations such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties. We’re down to our last 25 boxes of this fine drink, so order early if you want to be sure to get some. Our 2017 batch will be available from June next year.
We welcome the good citizens of New Zealand to the world of Worley’s Cider. We are now exporting our 50cl bottles here, and look forward to getting your feedback over the next few months. We’re not sure it’s on the shelves just yet, but it will be by the time Christmas rolls around, so you can enjoy some with Christmas dinner. Very chuffed that you will be drinking Worley’s Ciders on the other side of the world! Anyone looking to stock Worley’s, please visit http://beertique.co.nz – this is Trade Only folks.
