Tours & Tastings
What better way is there to spend a few hours, or indeed, a whole day, than learning about the science, culture and heritage of cider through the medium of drinking it?!
With over 20 years as a cider drinker, maker, communicator, judge and advocate, I have learnt the knowledge of, and developed the contacts within, the cider community which enables me to provide a range of unique and bespoke tours and tasting sessions.
On the tours it's possible to get exclusive behind the scenes access to world famous cider makers and taste ciders before they have even been released.
On the tasting sessions it's possible to taste rare and old UK ciders as well some of the ciders I have collected from my global travels (that are not available in the UK).
Whether you're a group of 2 or 20 or more, I can provide a great experience to match your needs!
