A SOMERSET cider company is set to be the official cider brand at Glastonbury Festival 2022.

Brothers Drinks, based out of Showerings Cider Mill in Shepton Mallet, will serve its Festival Apple Cider at more than 100 bars during the five-day event.

This is the second year of the official partnership agreement with Glastonbury Festival, which is returning to Worthy Farm from June 22 until 26.

Michael Eavis, creator of Glastonbury Festival, said: “Local provenance and heritage is important to us, so we love having a Somerset cider producer at the festival to showcase some of the best this county has to offer.

"Brothers Cider is produced less than three miles from the festival site and we have proudly welcomed them every year for the last 27 years.”

The partnership is with the Showering Family, owners of Brothers Drinks Co., which consists of four brothers who produce a range of apple and fruit ciders. The company has been producing an distributing cider in Somerset for more than 15 generations.

Matthew Showering, managing director of Showerings Cider Mill, added: “We are honoured to be returning to Glastonbury Festival this year.

"Having introduced Brothers Cider to Glastonbury back in 1995, the festival holds a special place in our hearts. This partnership is sentimental for our brand and our heritage as a local Somerset producer.

“Festivals are part of our DNA and this festival season is set to be one of celebration and people coming together again so putting our brand at the heart of these moments will not only allow us to provide a great experience to festival-goers but drive affinity with the Brothers brand.

"We can’t wait to welcome festival-goers back and bring them a season full of fun and flavour.”
