I was told you should do something nice for your spouse after 25 years of marriage. I took mine on a hard cider tour in Somerset, England!
Well, maybe I took her to a Valentines Day High Tea at Highclere Castle (aka Downton Abbey) and she took me on a West Country Cider Tour. Either way, it was an awesome trip.
While I thoroughly enjoyed checking out places like Stonehenge and Highclere, what I really loved was driving the back roads of Somerset in our Duster and stopping at different cideries. I was able to check out the operations of the cidery and walk around the orchard. The most fun was interacting with some of the people working at the cideries. I was able to talk about how they made their hard ciders.
I thought this hard cider tour was best shown through pictures. Checkout the slide show in the following link or go to my Cider Experience page where I have several tours and experiences available for review.
As I mention in my book, there are lots of ways to experience apples and hard cider. Some involve being fully submerged into the hard cider process while others can be a nice dinner with a fine glass of hard cider.
