CAMRA Award

Sheppy's gets the gold Somerset cider producer

Sheppy's has been awarded Gold in the 2014 CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) Champion Cider & Perry Awards for its medium Draught Cider. Owner Louisa Sheppy described the accolade as "the ultimate seal of approval, as the finalists are voted for by their drinkers, rather than by a panel of judges". Available for draught only in 5-gallon kegs and 20 litre bag in box, Sheppy's Draught comes in sweet, medium and dry varieties and has been successfully supplied to a number of festivals. The Taunton-based producer has also been selected to supply its 330ml bottles of Raspberry Cider to First Great Western Trains via its caterer Rail Gourmet. It will now be available on the train operator's London Paddington and Plymouth networks.
