Cider Salon Bristol from Monday 3rd to Sunday 9th June 2019Posted on: 03 Jun 2019
A salon? Full of cider? Oh, go on then, you've twisted our arms. Which also means it's a delight for Bristol babbers with a penchant for fermented apple-based libations when The Cider Salon returns to the city from Monday 3rd until Sunday 9th June 2019.
Showcasing some of the very best ciders from around the globe, the event will include a stimulating variety of exhibitions and dinners at a raft of independent venues across the city, talks and, of course, tastings.
So, for those of you not in the cider-swiggin' know, let us enlighten you. The Salon is a huge and popular - or hugely popular, if you prefer - cider tasting gig that presents 30 excellent producers pouring for your own personal quaffing a selection of 90 speciality ciders. This will be held at usually-a-music-venue Trinity Centre on 8th June from 3.30pm to 5.30pm, so you can slurp and swig your way through some of the most amazing ciders known to humanity originating from, not only the UK, but countries such as Spain, Sweden, Italy, Estonia, USA and Portugal.
Accompanying this array of beverages will be plenty of other events across its week-long celebration of the eminently gluggable cider, including a cider and food matching at Mongolian yurt restaurant Yurt Lush on Friday 7th. There will also be menus inspired by the ciders themselves specially created by the culinary maestros at West Street Kitchen, Poco and Dela.
What better place to have a cider bash than in the very region famed for the most delicious, drinkable scrumpy in the world? Some of the events are ticketed, others free; so the best thing to do if you want to get in on all the cider action is to saunter, slur and wobble your way to The Salon website here.
