Orchard Pig’s Hogfather cider hits Sainsbury’s shelves
The Hogfather is now available in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide
Irreverent Somerset-based cider brand, Orchard Pig, has kicked off summer 2017 in style with the new listing in Sainsbury’s stores. The Hogfather lovingly nicknamed ‘Pig Daddy’ with an ABV of 7.4% is not for the faint hearted though – The powerful blend packs a punch, so close your eyes and savour the Somerset cider apples in this one. Don’t be fooled by the impressive muscle power of this cider, it still has the smooth, drinkable moreish finish, that you expect with Orchard Pig.
The Hogfather is now available in 465 Sainsbury’s stores across the UK, demonstrating that drinkers are continuing to seek new experiences through the modern craft cider movement. Sainsbury’s large portfolio of supermarkets enables Orchard Pig to reach more drinkers than ever before.
This cider has been a long time in the making and after months of tastings and perfecting the recipe is now available for everyone to try at Sainsbury’s. This follows an exceptional twelve months for Orchard Pig in which it exceeded £17 million of retail sales, this new listing is just the start of many more exciting new adventures.
Andrew Quinlan, founder of Orchard Pig, commented:
‘’We’re an ambitious bunch with big plan for Orchard Pig and it’s great to kick the summer of 2017 off in style with this fantastic new listing in Sainsbury’s stores with The HogFather that will make Orchard Pig available to more people around the country than ever before. With this new partnership, we’re demonstrating to all modern craft cider makers that anything is possible.’’

What is Orchard Pig?
Orchard Pig is the cider and juice company well and truly rooted in Somerset, where it all began in the noughties with Andrew Quinlan enjoying his home-made cider and hog roast with friends. Born out of a shared passion for great food and old spots: the original orchard pigs, and an accidental discovery that Somerset cider apples make a stonkingly good drink.
