OVERALL OPINION OF ASTURIAN CIDER
Whilst on my last trip to Frankfurt, Germany, I was speaking to Edu (Cider Guerrilla) about cider from around the world and he mentioned that I really should try and see his homeland, Asturias, as it had a wonderful and very passionate cider scene. At the time I was really intrigued about it, especially as I remember at the International Craft Cider Festival in 2011 about one of the guys there having a very different cider pouring technique. Time went by and the conversation had completely left my mind.
Suddenly, a few months later, and out of the blue I get an invite from Edu saying that La Sidra magazine/website wanted me to come visit their III International Hall of Gala Cider event and let them show me about the Asturian cider scene and how things are done over there. To top it all off they also wanted me to help judge their cider event and they were inviting me to the III International Hall of Gala Ciders Dinner, which was being cooked for by a 2 star Michelin chef. At this point I was thinking to myself “What’s the catch?”. I pondered over it and then just told myself to just go for it. I then gladly accepted the invite, booked my flight and set off to the airport in pursuit of cider on 17th October!
