Discover the traditional art of making your own cider and perry on this one-day course. This introductory course is designed for people with an interest in making real cider and perry at home and those looking for a creative way to use their apples and pears.

Guided by cider producer Simon Reed you’ll learn how to make delicious cider and perry using traditional processes. Simon is a champion of real cider and makes regular appearances in the media as a recognised cider expert. He’ll share his expertise and passion for cider with you, as you cover topics and techniques including:

  • History, heritage and traditions of cider and perry making
  • An overview of the varieties of apples and pears used for making cider and perry
  • Choice and use of equipment
  • Milling and pressing of apples and pears
  • Fermentation and maturation
  • Bottling and storage.

You are welcome to bring along your own apples and pears for Simon to identify and, depending on the variety, use for cider and perry making.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet style lunch prepared by our team of chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.

‘Excellent, superb, amazing food, drink and the people are so friendly.’
