But first, Grant returns with his shop Aeble now open, confused with how many alternative cider fans have been hiding in Scotland, Gabe’s book Ciderology nearly arrives on time, and Martyn has no discernible news, bar an apology. Then, the charitable Gabe utilises his vocabulary to help a charity!
In the news, it's Craftcon 2021, the wonderful Simon Day hosted a fantastic event stacked with in depth talks, and one about kegged cider that a certain Cidershit was a part of! Gabe was interviewed for his upcoming book, with a certain set decoration that needs discussing. Finally Pulpt now have their cider 'Flare' available in Tescos.
The interview this week is with founder and president Gidon Coll of Original Sin cider. One of the true pioneers of modern cider, establishing his brand in New York 1996, with a desire to reconnect America to its roots through an authentic drink. The guys discuss everything; the mundane reality of association meetings, Banjo Pete, pounding the pavements of New York, Royal Bath and West Show, the history of the Newtown Pippin and everything in between!
The guys try a range of Original Sin ciders, with the clean, crisp Hard Cider, the controversial Pineapple Haze, and three different single variety ciders; Newtown Pippin, McIntosh and Northern Spy. There’s a lot of love, a lot of questions, and some absolutely bold claims made in this section!
Finally, it’s game time and Gabe brings a slice of The Big Apple to the cider heads of the hotel, but who gets to take home the crown?!
