I felt inspired to write a blog about cider, after attending a wine tasting event. No one ever describes a cider as a bouquet of geraniums and badgers, with a breeze of cheese and pickle. And neither will I.
As I spend most of my spare time drinking cider, I have a lot of experience of a lot of ciders. However, when the cider sense kicks in, I lose track of all those fine bouquets and tangy tastes, as I’m standing in a field in Essex at 5am, wondering what happened to the last 6 hours. This blog isn’t about analysing the contents of the cider, with connoisseur language, it’s about the whole experience of the cider, the location and the event, with cider in layman’s terms.
I’m not a cider snob, I’ll try anything, and all classes of cider will be included. Such a shame I didn’t think of this earlier – probably did and then forgot.
