Cornish Orchards launches 330ml cans

Cornish cider company, Cornish Orchards, has launched three of its products in 330ml cans – Gold Cider, Blush Cider and Alcoholic Ginger Beer.

Andy Atkinson, Managing Director of Cornish Orchards, said: “These new eye-catching cans are a perfect addition to our range. They are easily recyclable and very light to carry, making them great for festivals, barbeques and picnics. Cans offer real benefits for our trade customers too as they chill down quicker than glass and take up less space. But more importantly than all that, they taste delicious.”

Notes to Editors

Fuller, Smith and Turner P.L.C. is an independent traditional family brewer founded in 1845 and is based at the historic Griffin Brewery in Chiswick, London, where brewing has taken place continuously since 1654.

The Fuller’s Beer Company brews a portfolio of premium beers including London Pride, Oliver’s Island, ESB, Organic Honey Dew and Frontier Craft Lager. In June 2013, the Company acquired Cornish Orchards, a craft cider maker producing a range of award-winning ciders and premium soft drinks. Fuller’s is also the UK distributor for Sierra Nevada, the premier US craft beer. In December 2015, Fuller’s acquired a 51% stake in Nectar Imports, a wholesale drinks business.

Cornish Orchards is based at Westnorth Manor Farm, part of the Duchy of Cornwall Estate. Andy Atkinson, founder and Managing Director of Cornish Orchards, started out with a dairy farm and crafted apple juice as a hobby. The juice became so popular that in 1999 Andy gave up dairy farming to focus solely on juice production. In 2002 he created his own cider and today, Cornish Orchards produces a wide range of craft ciders, pressed juices and soft drinks.
