HASELOR-based cider maker Allen Hogan, is taking his brand east in a bid to encourage the residents of Hong Kong to sample his seasonal mulled cider.

A shipment of Hogan’s Cider left the UK in November headed for Hong Kong and arrived in time for the festive season.

Mr Hogan said: “Hogan’s Cider can be enjoyed in many US states, including Hawaii and now in Hong Kong. Interest in our export business grew dramatically in 2012 and I think 2013 will see us shipping our carefully crafted products even further afield.”

Hogan’s Cider launched in 2005 in Haselor when Mr Hogan turned his 20 year long hobby into a full-time business.
