A FRUIT juice producer is expanding its range of colourful drinks with the launch of a new orange juice.

Barn Farm Drinks, of Bradfield, has added a Sicilian orange juice to its quality farm-pressed fruit juice blends.

The new product, which is 100 per cent pressed with no added sugar or colours, has been made with Sicilian oranges and is being added following demand from trade customers.

The award-winning Essex fruit juice producer already produces five juices, three of which received one star at the Great Taste Awards last month.

The producer has also been shortlisted for three Essex Food and Drinks Awards, a Great British Food Award and a Future Food Award.

Craig Williamson, founder and managing director of Barn Farm Drink, said: “We’ve had lots of feedback from pubs that they’d like us to introduce an orange juice to complement the rest of the range, so we have gone ahead and done just this.”

“Developing it has been a real adventure for us – we’re experts at creating juices from fruit which we either grow ourselves or source locally, but oranges don’t flourish in the British climate, so we had to look overseas.

“After much research, we found a wonderful supplier in Sicily whose oranges make the most delicious juice.

“We’re really pleased to be adding a quality orange juice as a permanent addition to the popular Barn Farm Drinks range.”

Barn Farm Drinks’ new Orange juice is already available in several locations across the region, including Pin Mill Sailing Club, the White Horse at Edwardstone and the Castle Inn in Colchester.

The Barn Farm Drinks range is also available farm shops, pubs, cafes and retail outlets across Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.
