Overall Champion - International Cider & Perry Competition 2015

At Henney's it's always more about producing a decent cider than worrying about marketing and PR, but this week we simply have to blow our trumpet a little...

Yes, there's a bit of celebrating going on as Henney's Cider Company has just been awarded 'Overall Champion' at the 2015 International Cider & Perry Competition.

Mike Henney "delighted"

A prominent event in the cider making world, this year's competition saw 224 entries from 51 cider makers. Entries came in from around the world for the competition held at The Cider Museum Hereford last week, with judging by Nick Bradstock, David Sheppy, Patrick Shave and Julian Temperley

Mike's entry won first prize in the coveted 'Class 1 - Dry Cider' class, and then went on to beat the winners of the other 10 cider and perry classes, to take the highest accolade of the competition, 'Overall Champion'.

The winning cider forms the base cider for the entire Henney's range, so Mike is delighted to have seen it recognised in this way: "I'm delighted to have been awarded this prestigious accolade, especially given the quality of the competition".
