About this Event

Charles McGonegal of AEppelTreow Winery Artisan Ciders and Ambrosia Borowski of Chicago's The Northman will present back to back sessions of their acclaimed cider sensory workshops: ‘The Elements of Cider’ and ‘Cider: Sweet, Tart, and Tannic.’

‘The Elements of Cider’ is a presentation of the basic taste and aroma molecules found in cider. It follows a reductionist approach, presenting samples on common base, spiked with one molecule at a time in 12 flights of two-three samples and a common reference. There’s no confusing one Element for another in our seminar. With moderated discussion of perceptions and associations and origins.

‘Cider: Sweet, Tart, and Tannic’ is an exercise where we attempt to teach you about the influence and mutual interaction of these basic cider taste Elements - and at the same time we collect data by polling you during the flights in order to start quantifying those interactions. Not a perfect scientific study, since we want to you learn from it, too; and have some fun. We will also share the results of the data collected during the prior session.

This class is a recommended pre-req for the Certified Pommelier Exam being offered on January 29.
