It will take place on 22nd and 23rd June, hosted in the fantastic Old Market Assembly in Bristol.
LA SIDRA.- 60 bottled ciders from across the speciality sector, Pét Nat, Méthod Traditionelle, Keeved, Perry, Pommeau, Ice & Fire and Eau de Vie,
will be poured by the producers themselves, so people will be able to ask questions and learn about terroir, apple varieties and ageing techniques.
There will also be a number of fringe events including cider-themed dinners, talks, tastings, cheese pairings and keeving in a city pub.
A keeved cider is the holy grail of cider-making; naturally sweet, naturally sparkling and made only from apples. This interesting talk from Martin Berkeley of Pilton Cider will introduce some of the skills required to master this artisan technique.
In addition, Jonny Mills (Mills Brewing) and Tom Oliver (Oliver’s Cider and Perry) will be talking about their wild fermented cider and pouring 3 of their finest.
