As a small business, we’re always trying to get the most out of all our sales channels – making Worley’s as easily available as possible. This is one of the biggest challenges as a small cider maker because most of our time is spent actually making, packing and dispatching the cider! This week’s blog is about how you can get to try our ciders if you haven’t already managed to do so.
Worley’s draught cider range is now available pretty much throughout the country – available to pubs, clubs and festivals through a distribution network built up over the last few years. Our cider is available throughout England and Wales, so if you’re a real cider drinker and would like to get a pint of Worley’s in your local, please ask your landlord or landlady to get in touch with one of our regional suppliers and they should be able to make all the necessary arrangements.

… And don’t miss the last few weeks of the Wetherspoons summer cider festival. This year, they are featuring our Mendip Hills Medium and it’s going down a treat judging from the feedback. Big pub chains supporting small producers – fantastic.
Micro pubs and Freehouses
We’re going to feature a few of our excellent customers over the next few weeks. One of the first on the list has to be The Vaults micro pub in Devizes, Wiltshire. There’s pretty much always at least one Worley’s cider on the bar, as well as a wonderful selection of excellent craft ales. They will also usually feature a range of beers by the excellent Kennet and Avon Brewery – the micro brewery in Melksham that owns the pub – plus lots of interesting guest ales from the host of quality craft breweries. It’s not quite as tiny as its name might suggest, and there’s a free ploughmans on Thursdays! First come, first served mind. But if you miss out, there are always the excellent pies on offer…
Other ways to find us include online, of course; through bottle shops, farm shops and delicatessens. We are trying to get our bottled ciders further afield, but it’s a tricky one so far! We’re working on it. Meanwhile, you can buy our bottles online, or if you’re in the South West, try our stockists – full list here.
As well as selling through distribution, we take our cider bar to various events and festivals throughout the warmer months. We go down particularly well at food festivals – such as the Cheese and Chilli Festivals happening at five locations this year. Coming up is Guildford this weekend, plus Swindon and Winchester over the next few weeks. They’re always a brilliant day out. Plenty to do for adults and kids, plus excellent and genuine food and drink to sample. Try the website or call 07776 255199 for further info, and please come and say hello to us if you make it to any of them.
Cheers all, have a good week!
