Keepers of Our Craft: Jody Scott, Head Cidermaker at Zeffer Cider

The 2023 New World Beer & Cider Award winners have just been announced and we're so pleased to share that we have TWO in this year's Top 30!

Our new 0% Passionfruit Cider took home a Top 30 spot in its first ever year in the competition, along with some amazing feedback from the judges who've called our 0% Passionfruit Cider "one of the best zero alcohol beverages available in the country".

The judges went on to credit our 0% Passionfruit Cider for the way the "passionfruit pops from the glass but is underpinned by a clean and fresh apple cider". The judges also commended the style with which we craft it, mentioning how much they enjoyed "the surprising heft to the mouthfeel." Head over to the New World Beer & Cider Awards website to read more from the judges, including their suggested food pairings.

This year also marks the second time our Alcoholic Ginger Beer has been named to the Top 30 since 2021. The judges love its balance of spicy heat and sweet and have described it as "a versatile beverage that can be consumed as a refreshing sundowner, a pre-dinner aperitif or matched with food such as Thai or Malaysian dishes". We couldn't agree more and have been recommending our Alcoholic Ginger Beer a the perfect match for your favourite pad thai for years.

This was the biggest ever year for the awards with over 700 entries and we're truly honoured that two of our tasty beverages have made this coveted list.
