Do you want to be a World Record Cider Drinker…? YOU CAN!
THE CIDER BOX AND THE STABLE EXETER HOST WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT FOR CIDER TASTING
Tickets available through Eventbrite costing £10 with 20% of the tickets will go to our chosen charity Dorset Mind!
Together with The Cider Box, The Stable are hosting an official world record attempt for the largest cider tasting on Saturday the 18h of August. The current record, held by The Oast House in Manchester, stands at 255 people, so they will need all the help they can get to beat it and make it into the history books.
With a combined and unwavering enthusiasm for cider, Dan Heath from The Cider Box came up with the idea to try to better the record and The Stable have stepped in to host the event. Tickets are available for £5 per person and include a t-shirt, nibbles, a glass and samplings of the eight ciders on the shortlist for The Stable’s Cider of the Year Award. More importantly than the record itself is the fact that £2 of every ticket sold will be donated to Dorset MIND, The Stable’s charity partner.
Dan says, “it’s a dream, a fruity fermented dream, to be bringing the World Record home to The West Country from the North. And to Exeter’s Cathedral to Cider, where we’ll raise a glass and taste eight of the finest ciders in the land as we go through the shortlist. Paired with a slice of cheese or two, we aim to smash the current world record, enjoy some fine fermented juice, and raise some money for a cause close to our hearts, MIND.”
Whether the record is beaten or not, there will be a celebration to follow, with live music from 7:30pm. There is no doubt, that with interest spiking, an official from the Guinness Book of World Records tallying the numbers, spirits will be high, the cider will be flowing and there’s a very good chance that the record will be smashed out of the park. In any case, a sizeable donation will be put towards a good cause at Dorset MIND.
The Stable have worked with The Cider Box on a number of projects, including the upcoming Cider of the Year Awards, votes for which are being taken now in all The Stable’s seventeen locations across the country. The eight shortlisted entries can be sampled not only at the world record attempt, but at each of the restaurants in the run up to the ultimate judging, which will take place in early September.
