Cider Festival – Bristol Cider House, 3rd July

Posted on: July 2, 2010

Slightly short notice, I’m afraid, but I only found out the full details today!

If you’re in town tomorrow for St Paul’s Carnival or the Bristol Wine & Food Fair, it’s also worth popping over to Surrey Street’s Bristol Cider House for an hour or two.

Previously The Surrey Wine Vaults, the Cider House was opened last year and is one of Bristol’s quieter venues for cider lovers. Despite already having a wide variety of ciders both on tap and bottled, including Broadoak, Thatchers and Black Rat, owners Charlie and Tracey will be playing host to a range of other ciders for customers to try.

One that I’ve been told will be on the list is Moonshine: a cider that I tried for the first time at the Bristol Cider Festival earlier this year and haven’t managed to find since. At 7.5% it’s a deceptive strong but very sweet cider, and unusual in that it is almost completely clear in colour.

With over 15 ciders available to try, we’ll definitely be heading over that way at some point during the day. The festival starts at 12, and finishes whenever the cider runs out – I suggest getting there sooner rather than later… 🙂
