Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards 2016: Best Local Producer of the Year


The final award of the evening recognised the individual or business that has made the most impact on the food and drink community

The Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards are one of the biggest events in the local calendar and it is hugely anticipated by the region’s food and drink industry all year round.

We champion the best local producers, suppliers and businesses that are passionate about Somerset and the future of our local environment.

Thanks to both the nominations of the public and our well-respected judges, we have picked a winner worthy of the ‘Best Local Producer of the Year’.

This well deserved award goes to Thatchers cider

The winner of our editor’s award for best producer is a company whose name can now be seen worldwide. For more than 100 years it has been working its magic and it’s arguably one of the most well-known brands to come out of Somerset.

This producer promotes good honest traditional values and the family run business always remembers where its roots lie. Even if you’re not normally a cider drinker, the likes of Gold, Katie, Old rascal, Green Goblin or one of the other many varieties this producer offers, can’t fail to convert you.

The Best Local Producer of the Year is sponsored by The Oakhouse
