We always knew it but now it’s official! Bristol Cider Shop has been named the UK's Independent Cider Retailer of the Year at the Drinks Retailing Awards .

The pint-sized container at Wapping Wharf is packed full of West Country cider all made within 50 miles of Bristol from 100% juice. Proper cider. It’s the second time the team has taken the accolade, having won back at their Christmas Steps shop in 2015.

The awards took place earlier this week in London’s swanky Dorchester Hotel, with owner Pete Snowman and his team receiving the award from Martin Green, editor of Drinks Retailing News , Darren Broadhurst of award sponsors Aston Manor and comedian Kerry Godliman.

Pete said, “We’re really chuffed. There’s loads of competition for the awards so we didn’t expect to win again. It’s really nice to be recognised for all the hard work we’ve put into the new shop – and hopefully means that we’re doing something right!”
