Traditional cider is made with the purest and simplest of products: 100% real, freshly extracted apple juice and yeast, the latter either wild or cultured. It gives the finest expression of the flavour and identity of the fruit used in a centuries-old process passed down and refined by generations of artisan makers. The Advanced Cider-making workshop goes right to the heart of the traditional cider-maker's craft. Perry (often incorrectly called Pear cider) is also discussed.

The Advanced Cider-making workshop is intended for those who have previously made cider. It begins where the Introduction to Cider-making workshop finishes - with 100% pure apple juice.

Your instructor will be master cider-maker Michael Henry from central Victorian award winning cidery Henry of Harcourt. A highlight is Michael's presentation on cider flavours and taste based on a skilful and entertaining walk through Henry of Harcourt’s varietals and blends.
