INTERCONTINENTAL CIDER

Did you know that cider is one of the fastest growing alcoholic beverages in the world? Fermented apple juice lives a true global revolution.

On October 24 an exclusive dinner will be held at Aho Mihi Kantina in Donostia, where attendees will have the opportunity to taste 5 ciders from 4 continents, each paired with one dish: Sxollie Cider (South Africa 🇿🇦), Bfiver Cider (Brazil 🇧🇷), Decideret Cider (Denmark 🇩🇰), Abel Cider (New Zealand 🇳🇿) & South Hill Cider (United States 🇺🇸).

During the event, which will begin at 8:30 PM, I will detail the characteristics of each of them and I will tell the story of the producers and the cider houses where they are made.
