Thatchers digs deep for pub gardens

Thatchers, the leading family cider maker in the UK, is continuing its support for pubs this spring and summer with the launch of a new competition that offers the chance to win one of three top prizes of a £10,000 garden makeover.

Each winner will be offered a bespoke makeover of their outside space, ensuring the design meets the needs of the winning pub and its customers.

There will also be 10 runners-up prizes of a garden parasol kit, comprising a sought-after Thatchers jumbrella and five eye-catching premium parasols.

All the winners and runners-up will receive a Thatchers sampling event for their outlet.

As British consumers continue to show their love for premium ciders, 1 in every 7 ciders sold in the UK on–trade is from family run cider maker Thatchers, with brands including Thatchers Gold, Thatchers Haze and its new Fusion flavours Blood Orange, Cloudy Lemon and Dark Berry.

To enter the competition, pubs simply need to purchase three 50-litre Thatchers draught kegs from participating wholesalers before the closing date of 30th April 2023. For the list of participating wholesalers and the full terms and conditions click here

Pubs can enter the competition as many times as they like during the promotion period.

Rob Sandall, On Trade Sales Director at Thatchers says,

“A pub’s outside space, whether a garden or courtyard, however large or small, has an increasingly growing appeal to customers. The addition of plants and shrubs creates an attractive and welcoming environment, with items such as garden furniture, umbrellas and planters adding interest throughout the year.

“The winning pubs will each receive expert advice from our makeover team, who’ll work closely with them to implement the new design in time for the summer season, to create the perfect pub garden for the perfect pint of Thatchers.”

The cider maker’s continued investment into pub support follows its Pledge campaign during the Covid restrictions, which saw over 6,000 pubs receive a free keg of cider.
