Here’s something different to do in lockdown!

  • A fun event and a great tasting with education thrown in!
  • You’ll never taste cider in the same way again!
  • An on-line tasting of ice ciders served by Michelin-starred restaurants across Europe…
  • A fascinating journey to the northern reaches of Sweden…
  • Your invitation to visit the most northerly cidery in the world, close by the arctic circle, where these award-winning ciders are crafted…
  • A captivating tasting by Andreas Sundgren, Master Cidermaker at Brannland, direct from his Swedish cider cellar

Cider Is Wine – the quality mark for 100% juice not-from-concentrate ciders follows on from its successful launch spending an evening with Andreas Sundgren, Founder and Cidermaker – from the cellar on June 5th @ 6.30pm with a unique on-line event via Zoom.

Real cider is made just like wine – fermented not brewed, made exclusively from apples and aged for quality – in fact the processes to make 100% apple content ciders can be compared directly to winemaking.Learn what ice-cider is, the intricacies and precision of how it is made, with Andreas who created and sold software up until 2009.

It’s a fascinating journey.
