The Cider Challenge™
What's it all about?
This interactive tasting reveals why this fabulous national drink is seeing a revival of fortunes.
With almost as many apple varieties as there are wine grapes, and styles ranging from scrumpy to vintage, there are a thousand flavour experiences waiting to be discovered.
During the introduction, Richard gives your guests an understanding of artisan cider making, and leads them on an exploration of their senses to help them detect vintage from non-vintage and perry from apple, as well as regional characteristics. After the introduction, they compete in a fun challenge, complete with quick-fire quizzes, improvisation, and a healthy serving of humour.
For many years Richard has been crafting a locally admired cider at his home on Hayling Island.
This format is suited to client events, networking, press launches and conferences.
Your event can be run seated, with a high level of interaction, or from stalls where the tasting is a feature of the event. Your hosts’ material will be prepared with your audience in mind, be they seasoned tasters with a thirst for information or a group with a hunger for humour.
The format can be tailored to suit objective-driven team building.
We start with your desired outcome and then create a structure that will assist increased communication within your group.
