Taste of the South teams up with Hitchcox Cider

Hitchcox PouringNext month’s Taste of the South festival in Christchurch will showcase Oxford brand Hitchcox Cider.

The popular event takes place at Chapel Gate in July.

Hitchcox use traditional brewing methods for a really unique taste. They use a blend of apples (of course) then add other fruits – plums, blackcurrants, blackberries, elderberries and damsons – using a cloth extract that dates from 1971.

It’s a small, family-run business with an emphasis on quality, not quantity.

The Taste of the South festival is family friendly, with plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied while their parents sample the ciders.

Toby Hitchcox, from Hitchcox Cider, said: “We are really looking forward to showcasing our range of ciders and to be part of this fabulous event.”

Jackie Phillipson, Organiser of Taste of the South, said: “We are delighted that Hitchcox Cider is partnering Taste of the South Festival this year. Their range of ciders promises to get those taste buds tingling!”
