Welsh Perry & Cider Championships 2015

On Saturday morning of the Welsh Perry & Cider Festival, more than 20 Welsh cider and perry producers gathered in the banqueting hall of Caldicot Castle to take part in a blind tasting of each others products. The results of this tasting produced a fine set of winners for this year's Welsh Perry & Cider Championships.
