CIDER lovers will be enjoying a new taste at next year's Glastonbury Festival.

Mallets, a new brand from the Showerings Cider Mill in Somerset, will be on offer at 110 bars across the site at Worthy Farm, Pilton, at next year's festival.

The cider is produced using apples grown just miles from the festival site and will be on offer for the next four years of the festival as the event's principal cider brand.

Matthew Showering, managing director, said: “We are honoured to return to Glastonbury once again with our ‘Cider for Gods’, Mallets.

"We have been part of the festival for more than 20 years, having introduced Brothers cider to Glastonbury back in 1995, so the festival holds a special place in our hearts.

"We have worked extremely hard perfecting Mallets and this latest deal is testament to its quality; we can’t wait for the Glastonbury community to try it.”

Michael Eavis, founder of the festival, said: “We feel it’s very important to have a local producer of cider at the festival, showcasing some of the best cider Somerset has to offer.

"Mallets is produced just a stone’s throw from the festival and we’re really looking forward to working with them.

"It tastes great and I’m sure our cider drinkers will love it. It’s already going down very well in the village Working Men’s Club.”

The Glastonbury Festival will take place between June 26 and 30 at Worthy Farm, Pilton.
