Thatchers' new variety makes debut

18 April, 2008

Somerset cidermaker Thatchers has added two single varietal

ciders

to its range

after an excellent apple harvest last autumn.

Prince William is a new variety Thatchers has grown in conjunction with the National Association of Cider Makers.

Managing director Martin Thatcher said: "The Prince William is a cider apple that produces a soft, subtle cider. We have been developing this

variety for some time

.

"The crop of Dabinett was superb

so we have decided to bring this variety back after a break of five years," he added. "The Dabinett apple has long been recognised as an outstanding English cider apple, producing an excellent quality cider without blending.

It is

a favourite with those who like a

robust, traditional cider."

He said single variety ciders are becoming more popular as recently converted cider drinkers look to expand their repertoire.
