“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Dr. Seuss
As a result of the pandemic, tastings over the past year have been limited, restricting the learning opportunities.
To celebrate the reopening of the trade, Cider Is Wine, together with the IWSC Foundation, is pleased to announce a new tasting created to coincide with a return to our workplaces and the reopening of events.
This new trade event has been created in collaboration with industry partners IWSC Foundation, WSET, IMW, The Drinks Trust, Trade Hospitality and Sensible Wine Services and is open to all members of the UK drinks industry.
The tasting will provide guests an opportunity to sample over 200 wines and spirits. With a focus on some more unusual wine producing regions, including China, Canada, and parts of Eastern Europe, as well as spirits including Baijiu, Shochu and Rum, and worldwide whiskies, vodkas and brandies. The IWSC will be showcasing a selection of its Northern Hemisphere gold medal winners and Cider Is Wine will be on hand to showcase medal winners from 4 continents of quality 100% juice, not-from-concentrate fermented ciders, perries and fruit wines.
As well as the walk around tasting, there will also be opportunities for attendees to enjoy some blind tasting practice.
THIS IS A FREE ENTRY TRADE EVENT with trade validation and registration required. A collection for The Drink Trust will be made and all donations on the day will be matched by the IWSC Foundation.
The 2021Back to School tasting will take place at China Exchange in London’s Soho, between 12 and 6pm, on Monday 11th October. To register to attend, sign up via here.
