WNTV: ROSS CIDER MAKERS ARE TOP AT THE BIG APPLE

The Big Apple Cider Trials took place in Putley over the Bank Holiday weekend and cider makers from Ross Cider & Perry Co were delighted with their results. Proprietor of Ross Cider, Mike Johnson not only won first place with his medium dry cider, which I hasten to add is really delicious, he was placed third with his dry perry and then judged overall champion of the event.

John Edwards also did well at the Big Apple event. Last year, John's dry perry was placed second, but he bettered that this year by winning first place. Well done John! The good news didn't stop there however, as Gabe Cook was awarded second place for his medium dry cider and third place for the dry cider. Not bad at all for somebody who has only been making his own cider for three years.

This is the fourth time in the nine years that the Big Apple has been running that the beautiful trophy has been awarded to Ross Cider & Perry CO and we went along to Broome Farm to congratulate the winners and talk to them about their achievements. You can see what they had to say in the WNTV News sequence below.
