Spanish glory for local cider

Willie Smith's is basking in the glory of its inaugural international award. The Huon Valley business's limited-edition Somerset Redstreak Single Varietal cider won its class at the Spanish Cider Awards in November. The competition, in Hernani, near San Sebastian, was judged by an international committee of renowned cider tasters from the United States, Britain, Germany, France and Italy. Willie Smith's co-owner Sam Reid said: "It’s a massive thrill to be selected as Best Traditional English Cider at a European awards competition. In Australia we’ve got a bit of a tradition at beating the English at their own game and, so, it’s nice to be able to do this in cider now too!" Willie Smith's was the only Australian product to collect a trophy at the event.
