Greg and the team at MacIvor's cider are this week celebrating their first of hopefully many awards for their cider. The traditional dry cider (reviewed on this blog back in June 2012) won silver in the International Brewing Awards for a cider above 5% ABV, coming second to the Behemoth that is Thatchers Vintage.

Ciders were judged by a panel of 6 international cider expert producers chaired by Bill Taylor chief brewer at Lion Group.
Its great to see Northern Ireland products gaining recognition at such a high level and I hope that this well deserved award will help to promote our regions products to a further audience. Greg et co can be proud for this fantastic achievement after just 6 months in earnest operation and that a well-deserved sales boost is seen off the back of this. Here's to the 2013 crop tasting even better!
