My Year Of Cider Before I’m 30…Ratings Order

Note: Unfortunately I have already turned 30 now. Therefore this is just for archive purposes on how my year went on trying as many ciders as I could. 317 wasn’t too bad I thought!

So, I am well on my way to getting to 30 and finally into my last year now. Quite scary when you come to think about it, as it only felt like yesterday I had just turned 18. Though then again, that could just be my memory going with old age!

Some people when they get to where I am frantically write a list of 10 things they want to achieve before they get to their next decade, but then again I am not just like some people and I won’t be doing that. I love my cider and my mission before I hit that big 30 will be to try and have as many ciders as I can in my final year. I’m not necessarily setting a must-do target as such, but it would be nice to try 500 different ciders in this year. Surely that’s possible?!?!

So here’s to getting old and I will try and discover as much cider (both new and old) before I get there. Let the adventure begin!!!
