Thistly Cross’ Whisky Cask Cider has won Gold in the World Cider Awards after been voted the World’s Best Flavoured Cider
Complimented on its balanced wood-influence, the Judges also commented that it is, ‘a brave cider, where flavours of banana mix with caramel and smoke’.
Long matured in East Lothian, the company says that their Whisky Cask Cider develops its unique character in ex-distillery casks sourced from Glen Moray Distillery in Speyside.
Peter Stuart, Head Cidermaker at Thistly Cross said: “We’re delighted that Thistly Cross’ Whisky Cask has been recognised by the World Cider Awards. It’s testament to the passion and skill our team brings to the cider-making process, and also rewards Thistly’s relationship with our friends at Glen Moray Distillery, who supply us with their casks. It’s a fantastic way to celebrate Thistly’s 10th year.”
In addition, Thistly Cross’ Real Elderflower Cider was awarded the Silver gong at the awards. Blending with real elderflower blossoms results in a distinctive and zesty drink.
