Show Notes

Join hosts Gabe Cook, _____ __________ and Martyn Goodwin-Sharman as they all turn up and record another episode of the Neutral Cider Hotel!

First, Gabe went filming for CAMRA, Martyn released his rarely name-checked In Touch 2 with Pilton, and Grant? Well... you’ll hear!

This week’s guest is one of the bright young talents of British Cider advocacy.  Only a year out of University where he studied Graphic Design, Cider George has already worked for the likes of Crafty Nectar, Nightingale Cider and the Discover Cider Campaign.  Sitting alongside a day job in a design agency, this cider fanatic blogs, judges and has co-founded the brand new Bristol Cider Club!

The guys chat about everything branding; Fred Durst’s facial hair, feeling bad for the aliens on the can, scary dogs on the bottle, synonymous triangles, a knock about previous guests, peacocks, moustaches and the problem with Yokels! The tasting is varied, covering a lot of ground, from The Newt’s 2018 Dry Cyder, ‘Cider?’ vs OLICID, and the classic branding of Heck’s and Dunkerton’s, this is one that’s a lot up front, with the contents to back it up.

Finally, it’s back to the listener responses, as Martyn throws out a question; what are your favourite ciders for branding? Featuring Gabe’s history lesson on cider and pigs, and finishing off with a speakpipe about cider events.
