Edgebrook Cider have added a bronze from the New Zealand Brewer’s Guild Awards to their medal tally, taking it to a total of eight medals in just three years.

The Brewers Guild Awards are held in high esteem worldwide due to the world class selection of judges from around the world. This diversity of background and quality of judges ensures that the awards have a huge reputation across the globe as one of the most prestigious accolades a brewer or cidermaker can win.

Now in its tenth year of operation, this globally recognised, world-class beer and cider competition is open to brewers and cidermakers of all production sizes in NZ and from overseas for packaged and draught beer and cider. Local and international beers and ciders are judged over a three day period by a panel of selected experts from New Zealand and globally.

It is with those experts that Edgebrook’s Village Cider found favour, in the ‘Traditional Cider’ category.

“Traditionally made to emulate the ciders of Gloucestershire in England, our Village cider is truly authentic, made purely from orchard fresh Hawke’s Bay apples, and nothing else. No added water, sugar or flavourings,” said James Ostergren, cidermaker and co-owner of Edgebrook Cider.

“It’s quite heartening to see that our cider, made the traditional way, can be awarded in a competition of such high regard.”

Edgebrook Cider is a Hawke’s Bay company, whose ciders are available in selected stores throughout NZ. For South Island enquiries contact sales agent Crafty Beers and the company directly for North Island enquiries.
