Awards & Achievements
Here at Ostlers we’ve received multiple awards over the years, most notably, at The Houses Of Parliament, London, from the Green Apple Organisation for ‘Environmental Best Practice’!
We have also won a DEBI Environment Business Award ‘Made In Devon’, as well as being a finalist in the ‘Sustainable Ethos’ category, something we’re very proud of.
We’ve also been consistently recognised by the ‘Taste of the West’ (TOTW) award every year from 2013, right up to 2022! TOTW is the largest independent regional food group in the UK, so we’re thrilled that our cider vinegar has been recognised so consistently!
Ostlers was also converted to Organic with the Organic Farmers and Growers in 2014, and has been certified Organic every year since, so you know you’re getting the best quality cider we can produce.
We have put our success in the Cider Vinegar world down to an old family recipe, and a special blend of Devonshire apples. On top of the fact that Ostlers is one of the few orchards where the whole process is completed naturally! It’s a continual process of tasting, blending, and checking how the fermentation is.
We now have a very busy online presence with large volumes being sold through our website, eBay shop, and Amazon. We also have wholesaler’s that distribute our vinegar throughout the whole of the U.K!
Over the years we’ve had many famous chefs and celebrities using our vinegar. Emily Watkins used it in her starter which got through to the final round in the BBC 2 program Great British Menus, The Ethicurean used it in their bestselling cookbook, and most recently Liam Gallagher was spotted using it in his daily routine on a BBC documentary!
