Cider fans will be able to enjoy a range of draught ciders from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland during an Arbroath pub’s cider festival.

The festival will take place at The Corn Exchange in Market Place from Friday, July 11, until Saturday, July 27, inclusive.

The pub will offer a range of ciders over the 17 days, including some never previously available in the pub and others produced exclusively for the festival.

The selection will feature apple, pear and fruit ciders.

They include award-winning ciders, together with those with unusual flavours; beetroot, rhubarb, ginger and chilli, apple and raspberry and whisky cask cider.

Among those on offer are; Boxing Dog (Mr Whitehead’s Cider Co), Somerset Tree Shaker (Shepton Mallet Cider Mill), Hogfather (Orchard Pig), Doctors Orders (Green Valley Cider Ltd), Pear Shaped (Sandford Orchards) and Whisky Cask (Thistly Cross Cider).

The ciders will be available at £2.20 a pint.

Pub manager Jamie Muldoon said: “Cider is the perfect summer drink and I am certain that people will enjoy our fantastic selection.

“The ciders have been sourced from across the UK and there is something to suit all palates.”

Tasting notes on all of the ciders will be available in the pub.
