Aspall will now operate as part of Molson Coors UK & Ireland, within the Molson Coors European business unit and will continue to press, ferment, keg and bottle at its single site in Aspall, Suffolk.

North American-based multinational brewing group Molson Coors has acquired the cider and vinegar maker - established in 1728 by Clement Chevallier in the village of Aspall, near Debenham, where it is still based - in a deal thought to value the Suffolk company at around £40m.

Aspall chairman Barry Chevallier Guild said the acquisition was an important milestone for the cider producer, which had followed a year of negotiation between the two companies.

Henry Chevallier Guild, one of the owner-directors of Aspall, told Sky News past year that the company would only strike a deal with a partner "who wants to preserve the values and heritage of the brand".

Molson Coors said it aims to develop Aspall into the UK's top-selling premium cider brand.
