This Friday May 1st 6pm 2020. Talking & Tasting with James Lowe of Lyles fame.

James will be in conversation with
the cidermaker Tom Oliver

@finecider has been as creative as ever. Not quite XTC but certainly with Sense Working Overtime, Felix has seized the initiative during this Covid19 situation and re-orientated Fine Cider to open up retail as well as wholesale options including delivery, on line expansion and more choice with as few as 3 bottles to multi pallets available.

To support this fresh vision, Fine Cider created “6 at 6”, which quickly became “8 at 6”, featuring some of his wonderful chefs, sommeliers and customers talking to his collective of cidermakers that he represents, on Instagram Live.

This Friday May 1st sees the highly acclaimed and remarkable chef James Lowe, creator of Lyle’s (one of 2 restaurants in the UK currently on the World’s 50 best restaurants list) & Flor – two of London’s most captivating restaurants – talking & tasting with me, Tom Oliver of Oliver’s Cider & Perry, out in Ocle Pychard, Herefordshire on Instagram Live.

You can watch live & enjoy ciders with us, learning about where they come from, how they are made and gain a rare insight into the makers world. Plus 75p from every bottle sold will go to charity, supporting wonderful restaurants that are cooking for NHS staff & the homeless during the current crisis. The cider choice contains 1 bottle of Blakeney Red Perry, 1 of Bottle Conditioned Medium Dry Cider and 1 of The Mayflower #3.

To receive this selection before the tasting, be sure to order it before midnight on Wednesday the 29th April, and then (providing there are no issues with the courier) it will reach you in time!

Thx for pix to @fine_cider, @oliviaestebanez, @cider_greg.

If ordering after this time, you can enjoy your bottles with fine food as if you were actually at Lyles.


My favourite ever lunch at Lyles with Mary Topp from The London Cider House.
