Gwynt y Ddraig make Welsh cider and perry in a traditional craft quality style but they started scaling up their production dramatically recently. Last year they supplied the Brains brewery owned pubs in the Cardiff and South Wales areas and now they are to supply J D Wetherspoon. So that’s good news for Wetherspoons customers in whichever outlets they can find it.
Sales of Gwynt y Ddraig already increased by a massive 196% in a year when Magners Irish Cider have been blaming the weather for reduced demand for their mass-marketed ‘over ice’ product.
JDW will begin stocking cider from Wales’ biggest producer Gwynt y Ddraig – which just announced a three-fold increase in sales – at its Welsh outlets this week.
