Thatchers Cider has introduced a new range of 330ml bottles produced by Ardagh Group (  for three of its premium ciders. Thatchers Gold, Thatchers Old Rascal, and Thatchers Red are all now available in the new, fridge friendly 330ml bottle.

With consumers increasingly looking for premium quality, authentic crafted ciders, fourth generation cidermaker Thatchers offers a genuine story behind the brand. Operators therefore have a huge opportunity to stand out and benefit from this demand by growing their cider range with these Somerset ciders that offer three distinct taste profiles.

Thatchers Gold, 4.8%, is a medium dry Somerset cider, full of flavour with a wonderfully rich, golden colour. Thatchers Old Rascal, 4.5% is a full bodied, bittersweet cider, while Thatchers Red, 4.0%, has a distinctively red colour and soft fruitiness, with a mellow sweet flavour.

Thatchers Cider has developed a number of food pairing ideas with chef Tim Maddams and Indian cookery specialist Bini Ludlow, that act as a guide and inspiration when compiling drinks and food menus.

“We really believe that there’s a huge opportunity for operators to recommend a host of interesting food pairing suggestions with our new range of premium ciders,” says fourth generation cidermaker Martin Thatcher.

The new range of 330ml bottles is available in twelve packs. All three of these ciders are also available in 500ml bottles. Thatchers Gold is also available in the new 330ml bottle in Australia and the USA.
