Tempted Elderflower Wins Gold at CiderWorld 2018

Craft cider brand Tempted Cider has won a Gold Medal at the world-renowned CiderWorld Fair held in Frankfurt, Germany, last week.  Tempted Elderflower won Gold in the Flavoured Cider category and was praised highly by category judge and Ciderexplorer blogger, Natalia, who said: “Its beautiful aroma literally pours out of a glass.”

With 95 exhibitors from 16 countries, the international fair is a key event for the industry as well as consumers and the awards are one of the most respected in the cider industry.

Commenting on the win, founder of Tempted Cider, Davy Uprichard said: “Craft cider-making is a promising, passionate industry. To have our Elderflower cider recognised by international experts is a huge accolade and helps with our expansion into international markets with our flavoured ciders, which is looking very promising indeed.”

“Each Tempted Cider style has its own distinct blend and flavour, but each begins with provenance. In Tempted’s case, the beginning of our cider is the Orchard County of Armagh, in Northern Ireland. It’s vital that we continue to deliver the quality and taste that Tempted Cider drinkers now know and love so every care is taken to select only the finest hand-picked apples – only the best apples get to be in a bottle of Tempted. Our medium sweet Elderflower cider is very light and fruity with distinctive tones of elderflower. Not overpowering, the elderflower matches beautifully with a light blend of apple juice to create this justifiably award-winning cider.

Inspired by founder Davy Uprichard’s childhood memories making wine as a hobby with his father, Tempted Cider was established in 2009. Davy, a horticulturist by trade, set up a small cidery at the family home and began pressing apples. This humble hobby kick-started a mission to make the world’s most-loved and enjoyed craft cider and now, Tempted Cider is the most-awarded cider in Ireland with five styles in its full range and Davy’s passion for celebrating and sharing local apples poured into every, single drop.

Tempted Cider’s award-winning range is available in all good licensed retailers and select licensed venues across Northern Ireland and is expanding into the UK and internationally.
