What you'll do

To say the Cider Box team are in love with cider is an understatement! Join your enthusiastic hosts for a cider-filled tour of historic Bristol as they share stories of heritage, craft and passion. Even better, taste the delicious stuff as you go along! No one knows craft cider quite like these guys...

As you walk, you’ll explore the top local haunts and discover the magic of this spectacular beverage, in the world capital of cider. You’ll gently meander through Bristol's beautiful harbourside, delving deep into the world of cider, with a stop at Bristol cider institution The Orchard for a cheeky half or 2. (Only the best mind you!) This is a cracking way to begin your journey as a cider connoisseur.

This real West Country experience includes a stop for fine cider at Wild Beer plus a tasty pitstop at specialist cheese shop the Bristol Cheesemonger, known for their delicious array of locally sourced and hand-selected cheeses. Because cider and cheese really are a match made in heaven. With both these delights in your belly, you’ll wind your way back to the Cider Box Wapping Wharf where you’ll finish the experience at Bristol's only cider shop for a well-earned, refreshing cider. Familiarise yourself with the finest independent producers in the land and taste the best cider this side of the globe. Cheers!

About The Cider Box

The Cider Box are the leaders of the craft cider movement. Working closely with award winning, independent producers of fine cider across the UK, Europe & the USA to bring fantastic fermented juice to discerning drinkers. It first sprang to life in 2013 after founder, Dan Heath, became frustrated at being unable to find a good cider in the pubs he visited. Dan set about connecting small, independent producers of real, craft cider with pubs and bars. He also started tasting experiences, pairing cider and cheese from the West Country and visiting cider festivals everywhere. For the last seven years The Cider Box has been supplying cider to Glastonbury, Shambala, Arcadia and many more festivals, as well as running cider tasting experiences all over the world. The aim today is as it always was - to explore the provenance, craft, heritage and flavour of craft cider, and to share this with as many people as possible. Their cider tasting experiences bring together the finest cider they can lay their hands on, with the most beautiful accompaniment they can find, from cheese to oysters; creating the perfect combination and a match made in fermented heaven.
