Cider Producer awarded prestigious ‘Pomona Award’ for his contribution to Real Cider and Perry

Published on 22nd October 2013 by Gregory Rycroft

CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, have presented their top award for the promotion of cider and perry to a producer from Herefordshire, beating 9 others nominees selected for their contribution to real cider and perry.

The Pomona Award 2013, named after the Roman Goddess of orchards, was presented to Tom Oliver of “Oliver’s Cider and Perry” for his work in securing the existence of UK orchards and preserving the tradition of perry production for future generations to enjoy.

“I am very pleased to have been given the Pomona award, especially as it puts perry to the fore. In fact a good number of the previous recipients have perry and perry pears close to their hearts. I think this goes to show that the support and momentum generated by CAMRA, their Cider and Perry Committe, and entire membership is instrumental in sustaining the availability and demand for perry, without which there is less point in commercial production and consequently the planting of new perry pear orchards. Hats off to CAMRA.” Tom Oliver, Oliver’s Cider and Perry.

Andrea Briers, Chair of CAMRA’s Cider and Perry Committee, congratulates Tom on his win,

“Tom has worked tirelessly to ensure the future of British cider and perry, not only in the protection of UK orchards but also by producing a charter for The Guild of Craft Cider and Perry Producers which outlines the standards to which traditional cider and perry producers should adhere. These include using only British apples and pears and fermenting from fresh pressed apple or pear juice only.”

As well as selling well in the UK, Oliver’s Cider and Perry is becoming a hit with drinkers further afield too, proving popular as far away as the USA - where cider and perry drinking is really beginning to take off.
