The Isle of Wight County Press is delighted to be teaming up with Ascension Cider to give away some tasty treats.

The Sussex cider maker has just partnered with Isle of Wight-based drinks wholesaler, Eurovines, to bring their award-winning ciders to the Island.

Ascension Cider is made from eating apples that have been rejected by supermarkets for being misshapen or too small - but this means its cider has a fresher, fruitier taste.   

Pilot is the company’s core apple cider - recently been awarded cider of the year in The Pellicle Awards.

In addition, there are fruity cider drinks called Shimmy, a pineapple and lemon wild cider, Wrath, a grape cider, and a sour cherry cider, called Electric Messiah - all available from Eurovines.
