Aston Manor Cider has had a record year of award achievements after winning 17 accolades and being shortlisted for a further five awards.
The company has been recognised for the quality of its products and high standards of production at nine prestigious industry awards in 2016 alone.
In recognition of its environmentally-friendly practices at its cider mill in Stourport, Aston Manor Cider was given the winning position in the Water Management category at the Drinks Business Green Awards.
Celebrated for its authentic, great taste, Friels First Press Vintage, the company’s new craft cider, scooped the top prize at the International Cider Challenge and the British Bottler Institute Awards in its first year being entered.
Kingstone Press, Crumpton Oaks, Knights Malvern Oak and Knights Malvern Gold have also secured medals this year – making this Aston Manor’s best year for awards.
