Viking Cider Meet the Makers tasting session

Viking Irish Drinks: Get hoppy

In conversation with Julie Ward of Ardkeen Stores, David Dennison talks of terroir with a passion as he discusses what makes Viking Cider so unique. Discover bits of history, and how the weather affects each year’s crops, subtly influencing flavour and the intricacies of brewing. While the nicely dry Blue Label was the first Cider from Viking, this time we’re tasting Harvest Blush and Hoppit, for which David selflessly went on a research trip around the cider houses of the United States. There’s dedication for you. Food pairings are Mezze’s Lavosh Flatbreads with spelt and nigella, and Dillisk from the Sea Gardener as well as a wonderfully unusual hoppy cider along with the ever amazing Knockalara Sheep’s Cheese
