Selection of ciders and condiments

To secure spot on this tasting event please sign in here. This event is 18+ only, thank you!

Cider is an ancient alcoholic beverage prepared from apple juice fermented by variety of yeast and bacteria. During this session we will talk a bit about it's history, today's situation from different points of views and of course we will taste variety of both high but also lower quality product. This session will walk you through the basics. You will learn what you should be focusing on when tasting the beverage, what to expect based on what do you see on the label on the bottle - sweetness, bitterness/tardiness, acidity depending on the region et cetera.

Please note that you are going to drink at least half liter or rather over a liter of 4-5% alc. beverage in an average so you will feel it. We will have of course something to eat during the session so that should help. We will document most of the ciders on the table so you will be able to track them down, especially if you take notes in the first phases of the session which we would highly recommend. If you made or if you know some interesting ciders please do bring it in! Do not waste your time with bringing the international cheap chemical stuff we all know it unfortunately ...

Note from organizer Algoldor

  • if you can afford to "get admission" to this session for €20 (or more) as a perk as part of our crowdsourcing campaign or chip in during the event as "donation at your will no one turned away for lack of funds" it would be highly appreciated. I (Algoldor)'m planning to do another harvest of apples for cider making this year and I will need funds for it. Profit made during this event will be used for that, expenses for the tasting are going to be close to €100. Many thanks for support I really appreciate it! If you are interested in collaborating on cider related topics in the future please get in touch, I'm now studying this subject in Normandie.

This session is related to the Local Crop Processing Project (main info at FHB wiki), we will taste one or two ciders which are results of first season of this project.
