Old Monty Cider based at Garthmyl, Montgomery have just become the first Cider and Perry producers in Wales to gain Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status for their Cider and Perry.

To achieve this internationally recognised quality assurance award, their Cider and Perry must be made to very strict standards and conditions. The whole process from growing fruit to finished packaging must be carried out in Wales using 100% freshly pressed juice, no added water, concentrates or flavours, and naturally cleared and matured - the whole process being audited and inspected by Trading Standards Officers.

This means Old Monty Cider are now the only company allowed to use the titles “Traditional Welsh Cider” and “Traditional Welsh Perry”.
