Thatchers Cider plant tree at the CACG

Thatchers Cider have planted a new tree at the Cooper Associates County Ground.

The new Dabinett tree is situated behind the dugouts in front of the Andrew Caddick Pavilion.

Philip McTeer from Thatchers Cider said: “Some things are perfectly matched, none more so in Somerset than cricket and cider. Somerset County Cricket Club have a long-standing partnership with Thatchers and therefore it’s only fitting that the fourth generation cider maker has planted a new cider apple tree at the Cooper Associates County Ground.

“The tree, a traditional Somerset bittersweet variety called Dabinett, is at the heart of Thatcher’ passion for cidermaking as it creates a great tasting full bodied cider with character.

“There’s no doubt that this tree will have a great innings in the best seat of the house, looking out at Somerset CCC in action.”
