There’s a big difference between tasting and drinking cider. Drinking is easy but tasting takes time. If you’re interested in developing your sensory skills to better appreciate cider, check out our Cider Tasting 101 guide. We give you the basic tasting procedure, some key terms, a real judging sheet and a bunch of vocabulary to help inspire you. Anyone can become a better taster by slowing down and really asking yourself what you see, smell, taste and feel in a cider. It also doesn’t hurt to try plenty of different varieties.
