It's just over two weeks before we know if we're winners in the BBC Food and Faming Awards for Best Drinks Producer...

We've met the judges, Victoria Moore and Pete Brown, and have a lovely time with them showing them what we're all about, and tasting the ciders, and I think they went away happy!  At the same time we were recorded by Toby Field for the Radio 4 food Programme, and this snippet has gone online on the BBC website, with Norman talking about Putley's long association with good cider:

Now we have the almost unbearable wait to know our fate on the 28th November at the awards ceremony at the NEC.  Everytime I think about it, my stomach does somersaults!  I've never felt quite so nervous and excited about an award before.  I have a feeling that this could be a "game-changer" and really get Once Upon A Tree & Herefordshire craft cider to a much wider audience.  We've already seen an increase in enquiries since being finalists, which is causing us to look at increasing tank space for next harvest....

The other two finalists look very strong and worthy contenders, Kilchoman Distillery in Islay and The Kernel Brewery in London.  Whatever happens, I'm very much looking forward to trying their products!

A HUGE THANK YOU to those who have supported us so far, have sent us messages of congratulations on becoming finalists, and to those who are keeping fingers crossed for us (and to those who are coming along to the NEC - I hope we don't dissapoint on the night!)

Cheers,

Simon
