Gospel Green joins Cider is Wine

Gospel Green, a fine English sparkling cider produced on the Blackmoor Estate, has announced that they are joining forces with new non-profit organisation Cider is Wine (CiW).
Following on from the boom in craft producers over the last few years, the initiative aims to improve the profile of artisanal cider and its makers across the UK and promote cider as something that can be understood, discussed, and enjoyed in the same way as the very best wines.
Established almost 30 years ago and made with apples from the idyllic Blackmoor Estate, the makers of Gospel Green have spent decades mastering traditional techniques to create fine quality English sparkling cider. Each bottle is made using the Champagne method and undergoes two fermentations. The result is a superior product that critic Olly Smith described as “Bright with a super-dry zing, perfect to serve in place of a top sparkling wine, or to pour with a cheeseboard for a real treat”
It’s producer, Brock Bergius had this to say:
“Gospel Green is a small, high quality cider producer established in 1990. We strive for cider to be recognised as a high quality drink in its own right and to be able to sit on shelves alongside reputable winemakers. The many accolades that we have received from leading wine writers such as Olly Smith, Matthew Jukes and Hugh Johnson indicate that we are producing the right quality. Gospel Green and the wider cider piece requires wider recognition, which we believe ‘Cider is Wine’ can help with.”
‘Cider is Wine’ has been established to change the world’s view of cider. Launched in October 2018, it is a not-for-profit global alliance that’s protocol-based and has been created to support cider producers who seek to raise the profile of 100% natural apple juice cider production, reflecting consumer interest in more authentic, naturally-produced food from artisan producers. Cider is Wine has been created to focus the power of many smaller producers with one message: ‘Passion’, ‘Pride’ and

‘Satisfaction’ being the hallmarks of producers who seek to provide more natural, purer cider, which can be appreciated, just as a fine wine.
Alistair Morrell CEO of ‘Cider is Wine’ is excited by the opportunity to work with Gospel Green:
“ ‘Cider is Wine’ is a new way in which to see cider with quality standards that consumers can easily understand and that communicate directly to them. We are looking forward to working with producer members such as Brock at Gospel Green and innovative distributors that want to forge a new category for cider.”
CiW’s aim is to inform and educate customers, and actively campaign for a protected cider category where guidelines are rigorously adhered to, so a customer knows that a bottle carrying this endorsement is from a trusted source and has been produced to the highest standards. In a market where consumers are increasingly looking for quality, CiW will be essential in guiding those decisions.
With a Waitrose survey recently highlighting artisan cider as one of the key trends for 2019, it’s the perfect time to join the initiative and help the world discover the benefits of your brand.
