Orchard exports Down Under
A SOUTH East Cornwall orchard has exported 36,000 bottles of cider and ginger beer to Australia.
Cornish Orchards, in Duloe, near Looe, sent about 1,500 boxes of its pear cider, Cornish Gold cider and alcoholic ginger beer Down Under – each case contained 24 bottles.
"We devoted two whole weeks of production to prepare for this and we packed the entire container by hand so that we could fit in as many boxes as possible," said Cornish Orchards' Caitie Parrott.
"We had just three hours to pack every case into the container – the whole team was rewarded with donuts of course."

The container will take six weeks to arrive in Melbourne, South Australia.
"Just in time for their summer," Ms Parrott said.
Earlier this year the Orchard took home a gold medal from the Reading Beer Festival.
Its Farmhouse Cider went down a treat with the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) who use the festival to host its national cider and perry championships.
