Hawkes and Tortilla partner up

As part of a new summer partnership, Mexican-inspired fast-food restaurant chain, Tortilla, is currently trialling Urban Orchard and Pineapple Punch from Hawkes’s core range of ciders across 9 of its restaurants in the UK, with a view to upscaling and premiumising its drinks offering.

Customers are able to purchase 330ml cans of Urban Orchard and Pineapple Punch in Tortilla branches in Russell Square, Cardiff, Newcastle, Brighton, Oxford Circus, Cambridge, Exeter, Bournemouth, and Guildford.

Launch parties were held at the aforementioned venues to kick off the partnership, where bottomless food was served alongside tunes from live DJs.

Tortilla will be rolling out Hawkes cider to their full estate later this summer, so you can grab a cider and burrito wherever you are.

About Hawkes.

Founded in 2013, Bermondsey-based Hawkes is London’s first urban cidery, turning unloved, ‘wonky’, or surplus apples, which are too big or small for the shelves but perfect for juicing, into delicious real-apple cider.

Using only natural ingredients and never apple concentrate, Hawkes currently produces three core real-apple ciders: The vibrant, fresh and bright, Urban Orchard (4.5% ABV); juicy, sharp and lush, Dead & Berried (4.0% ABV); and tropical, zingy and offbeat, Pineapple Punch (4.0% ABV).

Hawkes collaborates annually with The Orchard Project – the only national charity dedicated to the creation, restoration and celebration of community orchards – to collect surplus orchard apples, allowing the cidery to turn vast amounts of otherwise waste fruit into planet-friendly cider every autumn. In addition to stocks from The Orchard Project, Hawkes’ Apple Donors initiative brings in donations from all over the UK. In 2021 alone, the annual apple drive saw the cidery save over 130,000 – or 12 tonnes – of apples from going to waste.

Hawkes was acquired by craft beer giant, BrewDog, in 2018. It is available to enjoy by the pint or can in all BrewDog bars nationally, in a number of Independent London pubs and pub groups around the UK, and at Hawkes’ Bermondsey-based railway arch Cidery & Taproom. You can also enjoy Hawkes in your own home; Pineapple Punch and Dead & Berried are stocked in 150 Sainsbury’s stores across London and key UK cities, and packs of all Hawkes’ core ciders are available to buy via the Hawkes online shop
