A cider maker has helped draw the crowds in at this year’s Plymouth Flavour Fest.

Cornish Orchards had its best year yet when it attended the South West’s biggest food and drink event.

The cider maker’s eye-catching stand on the Royal Parade enjoyed its most successful year to date, providing visitors with the opportunity to sample its craft ciders and soft drinks and learn more about this proud Cornish company.

The event is the South West’s largest free food and drink festival and transformed Plymouth’s city centre, with around 120 regional food and drink producers sharing their wares with flavour enthusiasts.

Visitors to the festival were also able to attend the cookery theatre, with live demonstrations from some of the region’s top chefs, including Nick Barclay of The Blue Plate, Chris Penk and Lesley Retallack of Cornwall College and Dave Jenkins of Rock Salt Café.

Alison Masters, marketing and communications executive at Cornish Orchards said: “This was a great opportunity for us to launch our new 750ml size Cornish Gold - a larger bottle to add to our range, which is the perfect size for sharing with friends.

“Visitors to our stand also loved the branded glassware we had on offer.”

Preparations are now underway for Cornish Orchards to appear at The Great Cornish Food Festival, held in Truro from Friday September 26 to Sunday September 28.
